21 He who pampers his servant from childhood, will in the end find him his heir.
22 A man of wrath stirs up strife, and a man given to anger causes much transgression.
23 A man's pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
24 The partner of a thief hates his own life; he hears the curse, but discloses nothing.
25 The fear of man lays a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD is safe.
26 Many seek the favor of a ruler, but from the LORD a man gets justice.
27 An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, but he whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.
