The proverbs of Solomon:
A wise son brings joy to his father,
but a foolish son grief to his mother.

Ill-gotten treasures are of no value,
but righteousness delivers from death.

The LORD does not let the righteous go hungry
but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

Lazy hands make a man poor,
but diligent hands bring wealth.

He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son,
but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

Blessings crown the head of the righteous,
but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing,
but the name of the wicked will rot.

The wise in heart accept commands,
but a chattering fool comes to ruin.
