- The king's heart in the hand of Jehovah is [as] brooks of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
- Every way of a man is right in his own eyes;
but Jehovah weigheth the hearts.
- To exercise justice and judgment is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.
- Lofty eyes, and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, is sin.
- The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness;
but of every one that is hasty, only to want.
- The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting breath of them that seek death.
- The devastation of the wicked sweepeth them away, because they refuse to do what is right.
- Very crooked is the way of a guilty man;
but as for the pure, his work is upright.
- It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman, and a house in common.
- The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
- When the scorner is punished, the simple becometh wise;
and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
- One that is righteous wisely considereth the house of the wicked: he overthroweth the wicked to [their] ruin.
- Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also himself shall cry, and shall not be heard.
- A gift in secret pacifieth anger;
and a present in the bosom, vehement fury.
- It is joy to a righteous [man] to do what is right;
but it is ruin for the workers of iniquity.
- The man that wandereth out of the way of wisdom shall abide in the congregation of the dead.
- He that loveth mirth shall be a poor man;
he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
- The wicked is a ransom for the righteous, and a treacherous [man] in the stead of the upright.
- It is better to dwell in a desert land.
than with a contentious and irritable woman.
- There is costly store and oil in the dwelling of a wise [man];
but a foolish man swalloweth it up.
- He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
- A wise [man] scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
- Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
- Proud, arrogant, scorner is his name who dealeth in proud wrath.
- The desire of the sluggard killeth him;
for his hands refuse to work:
- He coveteth greedily all the day long;
but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
- The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more when they bring it with a wicked purpose!
- A lying witness shall perish;
and a man that heareth shall speak constantly.
- A wicked man hardeneth his face;
but as for the upright, he establisheth his way.
- There is no wisdom, nor understanding, nor counsel against Jehovah.
- The horse is prepared for the day of battle;
but safety is of Jehovah.
