Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.
When the wicked arrive, contempt, shame, and disgrace are sure to follow.
A person's words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.
It is wrong for a judge to favor the guilty or condemn the innocent.
Fools get into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.
The mouths of fools are their ruin; their lips get them into trouble.
What dainty morsels rumors are -- but they sink deep into one's heart.
A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.
The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
The rich think of their wealth as an impregnable defense; they imagine it is a high wall of safety.
Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.
