It is better to be poor and godly than rich and dishonest.
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
The king speaks with divine wisdom; he must never judge unfairly.
The LORD demands fairness in every business deal; he sets the standard.
A king despises wrongdoing, for his rule depends on his justice.
The king is pleased with righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly.
The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise do what they can to appease it.
When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a gentle rain.
How much better to get wisdom than gold, and understanding than silver!
The path of the upright leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe.
Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.
