   2: He who walks in his uprightness fears Yahweh, But he who is perverse in his ways despises him.
   3: The fool's talk brings a rod to his back, But the lips of the wise protect them.
   4: Where no oxen are, the crib is clean, But much increase is by the strength of the ox.
   5: A truthful witness will not lie, But a false witness pours out lies.
   6: A scoffer seeks wisdom, and doesn't find it, But knowledge comes easily to a discerning person.
   7: Stay away from a foolish man, For you won't find knowledge on his lips.
   8: The wisdom of the prudent is to think about his way, But the folly of fools is deceit.
   9: Fools mock at making atonement for sins, But among the upright there is good will.
   10: The heart knows its own bitterness and joy; He will not share these with a stranger.
   11: The house of the wicked will be overthrown, But the tent of the upright will flourish.
   12: There is a way which seems right to a man, But in the end it leads to death.
   13: Even in laughter the heart may be sorrowful, And mirth may end in heaviness.
   14: The unfaithful will be repaid for his own ways; Likewise a good man will be rewarded for his ways.
   15: The simple believes everything, But the prudent man carefully considers his ways.
   16: A wise man fears, and shuns evil, But the fool is hotheaded and reckless.
   17: He who is quick to become angry will commit folly, And a crafty man is hated.
   18: The simple inherit folly, But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
   19: The evil bow down before the good, And the wicked, at the gates of the righteous.
   20: The poor person is shunned even by his own neighbor, But the rich person has many friends.
   21: He who despises his neighbor sins, But blessed is he who has pity on the poor.
   22: Don't they go astray who plot evil? But love and faithfulness belong to those who plan good.
   23: In all hard work there is profit, But the talk of the lips leads only to poverty.
   24: The crown of the wise is their riches, But the folly of fools crowns them with folly.
   25: A truthful witness saves souls, But a false witness is deceitful.
   26: In the fear of Yahweh is a secure fortress, And he will be a refuge for his children.
   27: The fear of Yahweh is a fountain of life, Turning people from the snares of death.
   28: In the multitude of people is the king's glory, But in the lack of people is the destruction of the prince.
   29: He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who has a quick temper displays folly.
   30: The life of the body is a heart at peace, But envy rots the bones.
   31: He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for his Maker, But he who is kind to the needy honors him.
   32: The wicked is brought down in his calamity, But in death, the righteous has a refuge.
   33: Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, And is even made known in the inward part of fools.
   34: Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people.
   35: The king's favor is toward a servant who deals wisely, But his wrath is toward one who causes shame.
