A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.428
The heart of the righteous weighs its answers,5 but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.629
The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.730
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.831
He who listens to a life-giving rebuke will be at home among the wise.932
He who ignores discipline despises himself,10 but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.1133
The fear of the LORD12 teaches a man wisdom,a and humility comes before honor.13
