Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free.122
Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.
The desire of the righteous ends only in good, but the hope of the wicked only in wrath.
One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
A generous2 man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.326
People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.
He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.428
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,5 but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.629
He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.730
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,8 and he who wins souls is wise.
If the righteous receive their due9 on earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner!
