If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.
The bloodthirsty hate the upright, but the just seek his soul.
A fool uttereth all his mind, but a wise man keepeth it in until afterwards.
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants will be wicked.
The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lighteneth their eyes.
The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth; but the righteous shall see their fall.
