A foolish son is his father's ruin,1 and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping.214
Houses and wealth are inherited from parents,3 but a prudent wife is from the LORD.415
Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.516
He who obeys instructions guards his life, but he who is contemptuous of his ways will die.617
He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,7 and he will reward him for what he has done.818
Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death.919
A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty; if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
Listen to advice and accept instruction,10 and in the end you will be wise.1121
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.1222
What a man desires is unfailing lovea; better to be poor than a liar.
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.13
