Fools mock at making amends for sin, but goodwill is found among the upright.
Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.
The house of the wicked will be destroyed,1 but the tent of the upright will flourish.212
There is a way that seems right to a man,3 but in the end it leads to death.413
Even in laughter5 the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief.
The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways,6 and the good man rewarded for his.715
A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.816
A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil,9 but a fool10 is hotheaded and reckless.
A quick-tempered11 man does foolish things,12 and a crafty man is hated.1318
The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
Evil men will bow down in the presence of the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.14
