A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
A wicked man taketh a bribe out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
Wisdom is before him that hath understanding, but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bore him.
Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for their equity.
He that hath knowledge spareth his words, and a man of understanding is of excelling spirit.
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise, and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
