The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.
All those who are arrogant are an abomination to the Lord; be assured, they will not go unpunished.
By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one avoids evil.
When the ways of people please the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.
Better is a little with righteousness than large income with injustice.
The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.
Inspired decisions are on the lips of a king; his mouth does not sin in judgment.
Honest balances and scales are the Lord's; all the weights in the bag are his work.
It is an abomination to kings to do evil, for the throne is established by righteousness.
Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves those who speak what is right.
A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and whoever is wise will appease it.
