- Better is a dry morsel and quietness therewith, than a house full of feasting with strife.
- A servant that dealeth wisely shall have rule over a son that dealeth shamefully, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
- The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold;
but the LORD trieth the hearts.
- A evil-doer giveth heed to wicked lips;
and a liar giveth ear to a mischievous tongue.
- Whoso mocketh the poor blasphemeth his Maker;
and he that is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished.
- Children"s children are the crown of old men;
and the glory of children are their fathers.
- Overbearing speech becometh not a churl;
much less do lying lips a prince.
- A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it;
whithersoever he turneth, he prospereth.
- He that covereth a transgression seeketh love;
but he that harpeth on a matter estrangeth a familiar friend.
- A rebuke entereth deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred stripes into a fool.
- An rebellious man seeketh only evil;
therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
- Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
- Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
- The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water;
therefore leave off contention, before the quarrel break out.
- He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, even they both are an abomination to the LORD.
- Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, seeing he hath no understanding?
- A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
- A man void of understanding is he that striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his neighbour.
- He loveth transgression that loveth strife;
he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
- He that hath a froward heart findeth no good;
and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into evil.
- He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow;
and the father of a churl hath no joy.
- A merry heart is a good medicine;
but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
- A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom, to pervert the ways of justice.
- Wisdom is before him that hath understanding;
but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
- A foolish son is vexation to his father, and bitterness to her that bore him.
- To punish also the righteous is not good, nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.
- He that spareth his words hath knowledge;
and he that husbandeth his spirit is a man of discernment.
- Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise;
and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed as a man of understanding.
