He who is ever desiring profit is a cause of fighting; but he who puts his faith in the Lord will be made fat.
An angry man makes men come to blows, but he who is slow to get angry puts an end to fighting.
The hater of work does not get his desires, but the soul of the hard workers will be made fat.
The man of pride, lifted up in soul, is named high-hearted; he is acting in an outburst of pride.
Send away the man of pride, and argument will go out; truly fighting and shame will come to an end.
The fear of man is a cause of danger: but whoever puts his faith in the Lord will have a safe place on high.
And the Lord will be your guide at all times; in dry places he will give you water in full measure, and will make strong your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like an ever-flowing spring.
A blessing is on the man who puts his faith in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
