Be not envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them;
for their minds devise violence, and their lips talk of mischief.
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established;
by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
A wise man is mightier than a strong man, and a man of knowledge than he who has strength;
for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.
