As the divisions of waters, so the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord: whithersoever he will, he shall turn it.
Every way of a man seemeth right to himself: but the Lord weigheth the hearts.
To do mercy and judgment, pleaseth the Lord more than victims.
Haughtiness of the eyes is the enlarging of the heart: the lamp of the wicked is sin.
The thoughts of the industrious always bring forth abundance: but every sluggard is always in want.
He that gathereth treasures by a lying tongue, is vain and foolish, and shall stumble upon the snares of death.
The robberies of the wicked shall be their downfall, because they would not do judgment.
The perverse way of a man is strange: but as for him that is pure, his work is right.
It is better to sit in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman, and in a common house.
The soul of the wicked desireth evil, he will not have pity on his neighbour.
