The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the
Lord: But he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the
way: And he that hateth reproof shall die.
Hell and destruction are before the Lord:
How much more then the hearts of the children of
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him:
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance:
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh
knowledge: But the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
All the days of the afflicted are evil:
Better is little with the fear of the Lord
Than great treasure and trouble therewith.
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
A wrathful man stirreth up strife:
The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: But the way of the righteous is made plain.
A wise son maketh a glad father:

Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth:
The way of life is above to the wise,
The Lord will destroy the house of the proud:
The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to
the Lord: But the words of the pure are pleasant words.
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; But he that hateth gifts shall live.
The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:
The Lord is far from the wicked:
The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
The ear that heareth the reproof of life

Commit thy works unto the Lord,
The Lord hath made all things for himself:
Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination
to the Lord:
Though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpun
By mercy and truth iniquity is purged:
When a man's ways please the Lord,
Better is a little with righteousness
A man's heart deviseth his way:
A divine sentence is in the lips of the king:
A just weight and balance are the Lord's:
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: For the throne is established by righteousness.
Righteous lips are the delight of kings;
The wrath of a king is as messengers

In the light of the king's countenance is life;

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: He that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
Pride goeth before destruction,
Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: And whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent:
