A wise son maketh the father glad: but a foolish son is the sorrow of his mother.
Treasures of wickedness shall profit nothing: but justice shall deliver from death.
The Lord will not afflict the soul of the just with famine, and he will disappoint the deceitful practices of the wicked.
The slothful hand hath wrought poverty: but the hand of the industrious getteth riches. He that trusteth to lies feedeth the winds: and the same runneth after birds, that fly away.
He that gathereth in the harvest, is a wise son: but he that snorteth in the summer, is the son of confusion.
The blessing of the Lord is upon the head of the just: but iniquity covereth the mouth of the wicked.
