People plan their path, but the LORD secures their steps.
A king's speech is like an oracle; in a judgment, one can't go against his words.
Honest balances and scales are the LORD's; all the weights in the bag are his doing.
Kings detest wicked deeds, for their thrones are founded on righteousness.
Kings favor those with righteous lips; they love words of integrity.
The king's anger is a messenger of death; the wise will calm him.
There's life in the light of the king's face. His favor is like a cloud that brings spring rain.
Acquiring wisdom is much better than gold, and acquiring understanding is better than silver.
The road of those who do right turns away from evil; those who protect their path guard their lives.
Pride comes before disaster, and arrogance before a fall.
Better to be humble with the needy than to divide plunder with the proud.
