No harm befalls the righteous,1 but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The LORD detests lying lips,2 but he delights3 in men who are truthful.423
A prudent man keeps his knowledge to himself,5 but the heart of fools blurts out folly.624
Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.725
An anxious heart weighs a man down,8 but a kind word cheers him up.
A righteous man is cautious in friendship,a but the way of the wicked leads them astray.927
The lazy man does not roastb his game, but the diligent man prizes his possessions.
In the way of righteousness there is life;10 along that path is immortality.
