Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life
|Proverbs 10: 25
When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever.
A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is his delight.
|Proverbs 13: 12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life
He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God
The sacrifice of the wicked
is an abomination to the Lord, but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
The way of the slothful man is as a hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain
The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord
The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the Lord
Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor
The Lips of Knowledge Are a Precious Jewel
Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
The horse is made ready for the day of battle but the victory rests with the Lord
Train up a child in the way wherein he should go: And when he is old, he will not depart from it
Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline, and understanding
Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest - and poverty will come on you like a bandit: and scarcity like an armed man.
The wicked man flees though no one pursues,
but the righteous are as bold as a lion
Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint
A man's pride shall bring him low; but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.
The word of Agur the son of Jakeh, the oracle. The man declares to Ithiel, to Ithiel and Ucal...
|Proverbs 30: 8-9
Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that I need
Conies are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised
