A wise child accepts a parent’s discipline; a mocker refuses to listen to correction.
Wise words will win you a good meal, but treacherous people have an appetite for violence.
Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.
Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.
The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace.
Godliness guards the path of the blameless, but the evil are misled by sin.
Some who are poor pretend to be rich; others who are rich pretend to be poor.
The rich can pay a ransom for their lives, but the poor won’t even get threatened.
The life of the godly is full of light and joy, but the light of the wicked will be snuffed out.
Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise.
