A scoundrel1 plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.228
A perverse man stirs up dissension,3 and a gossip separates close friends.429
A violent man entices his neighbor and leads him down a path that is not good.530
He who winks6 with his eye is plotting perversity; he who purses his lips is bent on evil.
Gray hair is a crown of splendor;7 it is attained by a righteous life.
Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.
The lot is cast8 into the lap, but its every decision9 is from the LORD.10
