The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.
He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.
Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
