When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes disgrace.
The words of a man's mouth are deep waters,1 but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
It is not good to be partial to the wicked2 or to deprive the innocent of justice.36
A fool's lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.47
A fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare5 to his soul.68
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts.79
One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys.810
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;9 the righteous run to it and are safe.1011
The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;11 they imagine it an unscalable wall.
Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor.1213
He who answers before listening-- that is his folly and his shame.13
