Better to have little, with godliness, than to be rich and dishonest.
We can make our plans, but the determines our steps.
The king speaks with divine wisdom; he must never judge unfairly.
The demands accurate scales and balances; he sets the standards for fairness.
A king detests wrongdoing, for his rule is built on justice.
The king is pleased with words from righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly.
The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise will try to appease it.
When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a spring rain.
How much better to get wisdom than gold, and good judgment than silver!
The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe.
Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.
