Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.111
Death and Destructiona lie open before the LORD 2-- how much more the hearts of men!312
A mocker resents correction;4 he will not consult the wise.
A happy heart makes the face cheerful,5 but heartache crushes the spirit.614
The discerning heart seeks knowledge,7 but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.816
Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.917
Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.1018
A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension,11 but a patient man calms a quarrel.1219
The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,13 but the path of the upright is a highway.
A wise son brings joy to his father,14 but a foolish man despises his mother.
