35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. 14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
15 In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
14 The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
18 A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
24 Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
16 A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
6 Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
29 A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way.

1 When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
23 These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.
31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
5 Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness. 6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: 7 For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

26 A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.
