The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue.
Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.
How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!
He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.
Like the coolness of snow at harvest time is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the spirit of his masters.
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
