"Turn to my reproof, Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.
He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.
He who troubles his own house will inherit wind, And the foolish will be servant to the wisehearted.
He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly.
A soothing tongue is a tree of life, But perversion in it crushes the spirit.
A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.
All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the LORD weighs the motives.
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.
It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city.
A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.
He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
The spirit of a man can endure his sickness, But as for a broken spirit who can bear it?
Like clouds and wind without rain Is a man who boasts of his gifts falsely.
The north wind brings forth rain, And a backbiting tongue, an angry countenance.
Like a city that is broken into and without walls Is a man who has no control over his spirit.
He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.
A fool always loses his temper, But a wise man holds it back.
A man's pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor.
Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son's name? Surely you know!
