Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
But he who hates reproof is stupid.
A good man will obtain favor from the Lord,
But He will condemn a man who devises evil.
A man will not be established by wickedness,
But the root of the righteous will not be moved.
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words,
And the deeds of a man’s hands will return to him.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down,
But a good word makes it glad.
the precious possession of a man is diligence.
In the way of righteousness is life,
And in its pathway there is no death.
