When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.120
The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value.
The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of judgment.222
The blessing of the LORD3 brings wealth,4 and he adds no trouble to it.523
A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct,6 but a man of understanding delights in wisdom.
What the wicked dreads7 will overtake him;8 what the righteous desire will be granted.925
When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm10 forever.1126
As vinegar to the teeth and smoke12 to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him.1327
The fear of the LORD adds length to life,14 but the years of the wicked are cut short.1528
The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.1629
The way of the LORD is a refuge for the righteous, but it is the ruin of those who do evil.17
