The proverbs of Solomon:A wise child a brings joy to a father; a foolish child brings grief to a mother.
Ill-gotten gain has no lasting value, but right living can save your life.
The LORD will not let the godly starve to death, but he refuses to satisfy the craving of the wicked.
Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich.
A wise youth works hard all summer; a youth who sleeps away the hour of opportunity brings shame.
The godly are showered with blessings; evil people cover up their harmful intentions.
