Proverbs 17:2-12

2 A slave who deals wisely will rule over a child who acts shamefully, and in the midst of brothers he will share his inheritance.
3 A crucible [is] for the silver, and a furnace [is] for the gold, but Yahweh will test hearts.
4 He who does evil listens to lips of wickedness, [and] the liar gives heed to the tongue of mischief.
5 He who mocks the poor insults him who made him; he who rejoices at calamity will not go unpunished.
6 The crown of the elderly [are] {grandchildren}, and the glory of children [is] their fathers.
7 {Fine speech} [is] not becoming a fool, {still less} [is] {false speech} for a ruler.
8 The bribe [is] a stone of magic in the eyes of its owner; {everywhere} he will turn, he will prosper.
9 He who forgives an affront fosters love, but he who waits on a matter will alienate a friend.
10 A rebuke strikes him who understands deeper than one hundred blows to a fool.
11 An evil person will seek only rebellion, and a cruel messenger will be sent against him.
12 [May] a man meet a she-bear robbed of offspring and not a fool in his folly.
