As vinegar to the teeth and smoke1 to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him.227
The fear of the LORD adds length to life,3 but the years of the wicked are cut short.428
The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.529
The way of the LORD is a refuge for the righteous, but it is the ruin of those who do evil.630
The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land.731
The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,8 but a perverse tongue9 will be cut out.
The lips of the righteous know what is fitting,10 but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse.11
