Just lips are the delight of kings: he that speaketh right things shall be loved.
The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: and the wise man will pacify it.
In the cheerfulness of the king’s countenance is life: and his clemency is like the latter rain.
Get wisdom, because it is better than gold: and purchase prudence, for it is more precious than silver.
The path of the just departeth from evils: he that keepeth his soul keepeth his way.
Pride goeth before destruction: and the spirit is lifted up before a fall.
It is better to be humbled with the meek, than to divide spoils with the proud.
The learned in word shall find good things: and he that trusteth in the Lord is blessed.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and he that is sweet in words, shall attain to greater things.
Knowledge is a fountain of life to him that possesseth it: the instruction of fools is foolishness.
The heart of the wise shall instruct his mouth: and shall add grace to his lips.
