The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wickedcometh in his stead.
An hypocrite with his mouthdestroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered .
When it goeth well with the righteous, the cityrejoiceth : and when the wickedperish , there is shouting.11
By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted : but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.12
He that is voida of wisdomdespiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace .
A talebearerbrevealethsecrets: but he that is of a faithfulspiritconcealeth the matter.14
Where no counsel is, the peoplefall : but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.15
He that is surety for a stranger shall smartc for it: and he that hatethsuretiship is sure .
A graciouswomanretainethhonour: and strong men retainriches.17
The mercifulman doeth good to his own soul: but he that is crueltroubleth his own flesh.18
The wickedworketh a deceitfulwork: but to him that sowethrighteousness shall be a surereward.
