- The king"s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever He will.
- Every way of a man is right in his own eyes;
but the LORD weigheth the hearts.
- To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
- A haughty look, and a proud heart - the tillage 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 vapour driven to and fro;
they that seek them seek death.
- The violence of the wicked shall drag them away;
because they refuse to do justly.
- The way of man is froward and strange;
but as for the pure, his work is right.
- It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than in a house in common with a contentious woman.
- The soul of the wicked desireth evil;
his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
- When the scorner is punished, the thoughtless is made wise;
and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
- The Righteous One considereth the house of the wicked;
overthrowing the wicked to their ruin.
- Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be answered.
- A gift in secret pacifieth anger, and a present in the bosom strong wrath.
- To do justly is joy to the righteous, but ruin to the workers of iniquity.
- The man that strayeth out of the way of understanding shall rest in the congregation of the shades.
- 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 faithless 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 desirable treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise;
but a foolish man swalloweth it up.
- He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, prosperity, and honour.
- A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and bringeth down the stronghold wherein it trusteth.
- Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
- A proud and haughty man, scorner is his name, even he that dealeth in overbearing pride.
- The desire of the slothful killeth him;
for his hands refuse to labour.
- There is that coveteth greedily all the day long;
but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
- The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination;
how much more, when he bringeth it with the proceeds of wickedness?
- A false witness shall perish;
but the man that obeyeth shall speak unchallenged.
- A wicked man hardeneth his face;
but as for the upright, he looketh well to his way.
- There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
- The horse is prepared against the day of battle;
but victory is of the LORD.
