A foolish son is his father's ruin, and a wife's nagging is an endless dripping.
A house and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a sensible wife is from the Lord.
Laziness induces deep sleep, and a lazy person will go hungry.
The one who keeps commands preserves himself; one who disregards his ways will die.
Kindness to the poor is a loan to the Lord, and He will give a reward to the lender.
Discipline your son while there is hope; don't be intent on killing him.
A person with great anger bears the penalty; if you rescue him, you'll have to do it again.
Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise in later life.
Many plans are in a man's heart, but the Lord's decree will prevail.
A man's desire should be loyalty to the covenant; better to be a poor man than a perjurer.
The fear of the Lord leads to life; one will sleep at night without danger.
