Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.122
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.224
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!325
Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke a discerning man,4 and he will gain knowledge.526
He who robs his father and drives out his mother6 is a son who brings shame and disgrace.
Stop listening to instruction, my son,7 and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.829
Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.9
