A fool hath no delight in understanding, unless his heart may discover itself.
When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt; and with ignominy, reproach.
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for blows.
A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
He that is slothful in his work is a brother to him that is a great waster.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it and is safe.
The rich man's wealth is his stronghold, and as a high wall in his own conceit.
Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honor is humility.
