A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
