The king's heart in the hands of the Lord is like the water streams, and by him it is turned in any direction at his pleasure.
Every way of a man seems right to himself, but the Lord is the tester of hearts.
To do what is right and true is more pleasing to the Lord than an offering.
A high look and a heart of pride, *** of the evil-doer is sin.
The purposes of the man of industry have their outcome only in wealth; but one who is over-quick in acting will only come to be in need.
He who gets stores of wealth by a false tongue, is going after what is only breath, and searching for death.
By their violent acts the evil-doers will be pulled away, because they have no desire to do what is right.
Twisted is the way of him who is full of crime; but as for him whose heart is clean, his work is upright.
It is better to be living in an angle of the house-top, than with a bitter-tongued woman in a wide house.
The desire of the evil-doer is fixed on evil: he has no kind feeling for his neighbour.
