A worthless man plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.
A perverse man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends.
A man of violence entices his neighbor and leads him in a way that is not good.
He who winks his eyes plans perverse things, he who compresses his lips brings evil to pass.
A hoary head is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly from the LORD.
