Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
What the wicked dreads will overtake him; what the righteous desire will be granted.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly.
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.
Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.
A fool’s lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.
The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
He mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble.
An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk, but a righteous man escapes trouble.
