The words of the mouth are deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream.
It is not right to be partial to the guilty, or to subvert the innocent in judgment.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.
The wealth of the rich is their strong city; in their imagination it is like a high wall.
Before destruction one's heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor.
If one gives answer before hearing, it is folly and shame.
