Ill-gotten treasures are of no value, but righteousness delivers from death.
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
A fool spurns his father’s discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.
The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.
Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life.
He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.
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.
