4A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
6The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
8A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
9He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
11He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
14A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
27The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
