2 The arich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all.
3 A aprudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the afroward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
11 He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.
12 The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.
14 The mouth of astrange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.
15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.
18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
19 That thy trust may be in the Lord, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.
20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the awords of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
22 Rob not the apoor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
28 Remove not the ancient alandmark, which thy fathers have set.
