   16: Every prudent [man] acteth with knowledge; but the foolish layeth open [his] folly.
   17: A wicked messenger falleth into evil; but a faithful ambassador is health.
   18: Poverty and shame shall be [to] him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
   19: The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; but it is abomination to the foolish to depart from evil.
   20: He that walketh with wise [men] becometh wise; but a companion of the foolish will be depraved.
   21: Evil pursueth sinners; but to the righteous good shall be repaid.
   22: A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; but the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous [man].
   23: Much food is in the tillage of the poor; but there is that is lost for want of judgment.
