He who troubles his own house will inherit wind, And the foolish will be servant to the wisehearted.
Better is he who is lightly esteemed and has a servant Than he who honors himself and lacks bread.
The king's favor is toward a servant who acts wisely, But his anger is toward him who acts shamefully.
A servant who acts wisely will rule over a son who acts shamefully, And will share in the inheritance among brothers.
Luxury is not fitting for a fool; Much less for a slave to rule over princes.
The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower becomes the lender's slave.
A slave will not be instructed by words alone; For though he understands, there will be no response.
He who pampers his slave from childhood Will in the end find him to be a son.
Do not slander a slave to his master, Or he will curse you and you will be found guilty.
Under a slave when he becomes king, And a fool when he is satisfied with food,
