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 generous1 man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.226
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.328
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,4 but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.529
He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.630
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,7 and he who wins souls is wise.
If the righteous receive their due8 on earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner!
