Rich and poor have this in common -ADONAI made them both.
The clever see trouble coming and hide; the simple go on and pay the penalty.
The reward for humility is fear of ADONAI, along with wealth, honor and life.
Thorns and snares beset the way of the stubborn; he who values his life keeps his distance from them.
Train a child in the way he [should] go; and, even when old, he will not swerve from it.
The rich rule the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.
He who sows injustice reaps trouble, and the rod of his angry outburst will fail.
He who is generous is blessed, because he shares his food with the poor.
Throw the scoffer out, and quarreling goes too; strife and insults cease.
He who loves the pure-hearted and is gracious in speech will have the king as his friend.
The eyes of ADONAI protect [the man with] knowledge, but he overturns the plans of a traitor.
