When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.

The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, but the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.

The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, but the unfaithful will be taken by their own lust.

When a wicked man dies, his expectation will perish, and the hope of the unjust perishes.

When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his peace.

The merciful man does good for his own soul, but he who is cruel troubles his own flesh.

The wicked man does deceptive work, but to him who sows righteousness will be a sure reward.

As righteousness leads to life, so he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death.

Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished; but the posterity of the righteous will be delivered.

As a ring of gold in a swine's snout, so is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.

The desire of the righteous is only good, but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty.

The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.

The people will curse him who withholds grain, but blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.

He who diligently seeks good finds favor, but trouble will come to him who seeks evil.

He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage.

He who troubles his own house will inherit the wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.

If the righteous will be recompensed on the earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner.
