The proverbs of Solomon: A wise child makes a father glad, but a foolish child grieves his mother. Treasures of wickedness do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death. Yahweh will not cause a righteous person to go hungry, but the craving of the wicked he will thwart.read more.
A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent enriches. He who gathers in the summer [is] a child who is prudent; he who sleeps at the harvest [is] a child who brings shame. Blessings [belong] to the head of the righteous, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence. The memory of righteousness [is] like a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot. A heart of wisdom will heed commandments, but a babbling fool will come to ruin. Whoever walks in integrity will walk securely, but whoever follows perversity, his ways will be made known. The winking of an eye causes trouble, and the foolishness of lips comes to ruin. A fountain of life [is] a mouth of righteousness, and a mouth of wickedness conceals violence. Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers over all offenses. On the lips of one who has understanding, wisdom is found, but a rod [is] for the back of one who lacks {sense}. Those who are wise lay up knowledge, but [to] the mouth of the fool, ruin draws near. The wealth of the rich [is] the city of his strength; the ruin of the poor [is] their poverty. The wage of the righteous [leads] to life; the gain of the wicked to sin. [On] the path to life is he who guards instruction, but he who rejects rebuke goes astray. He who conceals hatred [has] lips of deceit, and he who utters slander--he is a fool. In many words, transgression is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is prudent. Choice silver is a tongue of righteousness, a heart of wickedness is {of little worth}. Lips of righteousness feed many, but fools {die for lack of sense}. The blessing of Yahweh makes [one] rich, and he does not increase sorrow with it. [It is] like a sport for a fool to do wrong, wisdom for a person of understanding. The dread of the wicked will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted. With the passing of the tempest, there is no wickedness, but [the] righteous have a foundation forever. Like vinegar to the tooth and like smoke to the eyes, thus [is] the lazy to one who employs him. The fear of Yahweh adds life, but the years of the wicked are shortened. The hope of the righteous [is] gladness, but the expectation of the wicked comes to nothing. A stronghold for the upright is the way of Yahweh, but ruin [belongs] to {evildoers}. The righteous one is forever; he will not be removed. But the wicked will not remain in the land. The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but a tongue of perversity will be cut off.

Matthew 5:21-24

"You have heard that it was said to the {people of old}, 'Do not commit murder,' and 'whoever commits murder will be subject to judgment.' But I say to you that everyone who is angry at his brother will be subject to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, 'Stupid fool!' will be subject to the council, and whoever says, 'Obstinate fool!' will be subject to fiery hell. Therefore if you present your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,read more.
leave your gift there before the altar and first go be reconciled to your brother, and then come [and] present your gift.

Galatians 2:15-16

We [are] Jews by nature and not sinners from among the Gentiles, but knowing that a person is not justified by the works of the law, if not by faith in Jesus Christ, and we have believed in Christ Jesus so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law {no human being will be justified}.

James 2:14-19

What [is] the benefit, my brothers, if someone says [that he] has faith but does not have works? That faith [is] not able to save him, [is it]? If a brother or a sister is poorly clothed and lacking food for the day, and one of you should say to them, "Go in peace, keep warm and {eat well}," but does not give them what is necessary for the body, what [is] the benefit?read more.
Thus also faith, if it does not have works, is dead by itself. But someone will say, "You have faith and I have works." Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe, and shudder!

2 Peter 1:5-11

and [for] this same [reason], and [by] applying all diligence, supply with your faith excellence of character, and with excellence of character, knowledge, and with knowledge, self-control, and with self-control, patient endurance, and with patient endurance, godliness, and with godliness, brotherly love, and with brotherly love, love.read more.
For [if] these [things] are yours and are increasing, this does not make [you] useless or unproductive in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For [the one] for whom these [things] [are] not present is blind, being nearsighted, {having forgotten the cleansing} of his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be zealous even more to make your calling and election secure, because [if you] do these [things], you will never ever stumble. For in this way entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied for you.

Matthew 7:16-20

You will recognize them by their fruits: they do not gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles, [do they]? In the [same] way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree is not able to produce bad fruit, nor a bad tree to produce good fruit.read more.
Every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. As a result, you will recognize them by their fruits.

Luke 6:43-45

"For there is no good tree that produces bad fruit, nor on the other hand a bad tree that produces good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thorn plants, nor are grapes harvested from thorn bushes. The good person out of the good treasury of his heart brings forth good, and the evil person out of [his] evil [treasury] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Matthew 7:24-25

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain came down and the rivers came and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it did not collapse, because its foundation was laid on the rock.

Luke 6:47-48

"Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and does them--I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And [when] a flood came, the river burst against that house and was not able to shake it, because it had been built well.

Romans 6:11-14

So also you, consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that [you] obey its desires, and do not present your members to sin [as] instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead, and your members to God [as] instruments of righteousness.read more.

for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. So then, we must not sleep like the rest, but must be on the alert and be self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night.read more.
But [because] we are of the day, we must be sober, [by] putting on the breastplate of faith and love and [as] a helmet the hope of salvation,
