The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just. Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.
