   16: How much better is it to get wisdom than fine gold, and the getting of intelligence to be preferred to silver!
   17: The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that taketh heed to his way keepeth his soul.
   18: Pride [goeth] before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
   19: Better is it to be of a humble spirit with the meek, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
   20: He that giveth heed to the word shall find good; and whoso confideth in Jehovah, happy is he.
   21: The wise in heart is called intelligent, and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
   22: Wisdom is a fountain of life for him that hath it; but the instruction of fools is folly.
   23: The heart of the wise maketh his mouth intelligent, and upon his lips increaseth learning.
   24: Pleasant words are [as] a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health for the bones.
   25: There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is the ways of death.
   26: The appetite of the labourer laboureth for him, for his mouth urgeth him on.
   27: A man of Belial diggeth up evil, and on his lips there is as a scorching fire.
