2 In rebellion, a land has many rulers, but order is maintained by a man of understanding and knowledge.
6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich.
7 Whoever keeps the Law is a wise son; but he who is a companion of gluttons shames his father.
8 He who increases his wealth by excessive interest gathers it for one who has pity on the poor.
10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, he will fall into his own trap; but the blameless will inherit good.
12 When the righteous triumph, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.
13 He who conceals his sins doesn't prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
14 Blessed is the man who is always reverent; but the one who hardens his heart will fall into evil.
17 A man who is tormented by life blood will be a fugitive until death; no one will support him.
19 One who works his land will have an abundance of food; but one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
20 A faithful man is rich with blessings; but one who is eager to be rich will not go unpunished.
23 One who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor than one who flatters with the tongue.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says, "It's not wrong." He is a partner with a destroyer.
