The Proverbs of Solomon: A wise son makes a glad father, But a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death.
The Lord will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked.
He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.
He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.
Blessings are on the head of the righteous, But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
The memory of the righteous is blessed, But the name of the wicked will rot.
