- The king’s heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.
- Every way of a man is right in his own eyes;
But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.
- To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.
- A high look, and a proud heart, [Even] the lamp of the wicked, is sin.
- The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness;
But every one that is hasty [hasteth] only to want.
- The getting of treasures by a lying tongue Is a vapor driven to and fro by them that seek death.
- The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away, Because they refuse to do justice.
- The way of him that is laden with guilt is exceeding crooked;
But as for the pure, his work is right.
- It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.
- The soul of the wicked desireth evil: His neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.
- When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise;
And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
- The righteous man considereth the house of the wicked, [How] the wicked are overthrown to [their] ruin.
- Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, He also shall cry, but shall not be heard.
- A gift in secret pacifieth anger;
And a present in the bosom, strong wrath.
- It is joy to the righteous to do justice;
But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
- The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding Shall rest in the assembly of the dead.
- He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
- The wicked is a ransom for the righteous;
And the treacherous [cometh] in the stead of the upright.
- It is better to dwell in a desert land, Than with a contentious and fretful woman.
- There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise;
But a foolish man swalloweth it up.
- He that followeth after righteousness and kindness Findeth life, righteousness, and honor.
- A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, And bringeth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
- Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue Keepeth his soul from troubles.
- The proud and haughty man, scoffer is his name;
He worketh in the arrogance of pride.
- The desire of the sluggard killeth him;
For his hands refuse to labor.
- There is that coveteth greedily all the day long;
But the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.
- The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind!
- A false witness shall perish;
But the man that heareth shall speak so as to endure.
- A wicked man hardeneth his face;
But as for the upright, he establisheth his ways.
- There is no wisdom nor understanding Nor counsel against Jehovah.
- The horse is prepared against the day of battle;
But victory is of Jehovah.
