No harm comes to the godly, but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.
The wise don’t make a show of their knowledge, but fools broadcast their foolishness.
Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave.
Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray.
Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find.
The way of the godly leads to life; that path does not lead to death.
