; . 7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not; but the house of the righteous shall stand.
-, -; -, . 8 A man shall be commended according to his intelligence; but he that is of a distorted understanding shall be despised.

--, ; . 16 A fool's vexation is presently known; but a prudent man concealeth shame.
, ; . 17 He that breatheth forth truth uttereth righteousness; but a false witness deceit.
, ; . 18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword; but the tongue of the wise is health.
-, ; -, . 19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
, - ; . 20 Deceit is in the heart of them that devise evil; but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

, -; . 22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD; but they that deal truly are His delight.
, ; , . 23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge; but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
- ; , . 24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule; but the slothful shall be under tribute.
- ; . 25 Care in the heart of a man boweth it down; but a good word maketh it glad.
