7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
6For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
1A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
23For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: 24To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
2When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
29Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
24There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
23A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
11A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
22Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
17A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
