Kings favor those with righteous lips; they love words of integrity.
The king's anger is a messenger of death; the wise will calm him.
There's life in the light of the king's face. His favor is like a cloud that brings spring rain.
Acquiring wisdom is much better than gold, and acquiring understanding is better than silver.
The road of those who do right turns away from evil; those who protect their path guard their lives.
Pride comes before disaster, and arrogance before a fall.
Better to be humble with the needy than to divide plunder with the proud.
Those with insight find prosperity; those who trust the LORD are blessed.
The skilled mind is called discerning, and pleasant speech enhances teaching.
One who has insight is a fountain of life, but the instruction of the foolish is folly.
The mind of the wise makes their speech insightful and enhances the teaching of their lips.
