1The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
5The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.
11When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
12The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.
13Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
16The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
20There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.
22A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
27The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
