Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a man who is perverse in speech, and is a fool.
It is not good for a man to be without knowledge, and he who makes haste with his feet misses his way.
When a man's folly brings his way to ruin, his heart rages against the LORD.
Wealth brings many new friends, but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who utters lies will not escape.
Many seek the favor of a generous man, and every one is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
All a poor man's brothers hate him; how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursues them with words, but does not have them.
He who gets wisdom loves himself; he who keeps understanding will prosper.
A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who utters lies will perish.
It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, much less for a slave to rule over princes.
