7 He that is full, abhorreth a honeycomb; but unto him that is hungry, every sour thing is sweet.
9 The heart is glad of a sweet ointment and savour, but a stomach that can give good counsel, rejoiceth a man's neighbour.
10 Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, see thou forsake not; but go not into thy brother's house in time of thy trouble. Better is a friend at hand than a brother far off.
11 My son, be wise, and thou shalt make me a glad heart; so that I shall make answer unto my rebukers.
12 A wise man seeing the plague will hide himself; as for fools they go on still, and suffer harm.
13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for the unknown man's sake.
14 He that is too hasty to praise his neighbour above measure, shall be taken as one that giveth him an evil report.
15 A brawling woman and the roof of the house dropping in a rainy day, may well be compared together.
18 Whoso keepeth his fig tree, shall enjoy the fruits thereof; he that waiteth upon his master, shall come to honour.
20 Like as hell and destruction are never full, even so the eyes of men can never be satisfied.
21 Silver is tried in the mould, and gold in the furnace, and so is a man, when he is openly praised to his face.
22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool with a pedestal in a mortar like oatmeal, yet will not his foolishness go from him.
