The LORD hates cheating, but he delights in honesty.
Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Good people are guided by their honesty; treacherous people are destroyed by their dishonesty.
Riches won't help on the day of judgment, but right living is a safeguard against death.
The godly are directed by their honesty; the wicked fall beneath their load of sin.
The godliness of good people rescues them; the ambition of treacherous people traps them.
When the wicked die, their hopes all perish, for they rely on their own feeble strength.
