2 For the transgression of the land there are many princes thereof: but by a man of vnderstanding and knowledge a realme likewise endureth long.
4 They that forsake the Law, prayse the wicked: but they that keepe the Law, set themselues against them.
6 Better is the poore that walketh in his vprightnesse, then hee that peruerteth his wayes, though he be riche.
7 He that keepeth the Law, is a childe of vnderstanding: but hee that feedeth the gluttons, shameth his father.
8 He that increaseth his riches by vsurie and interest, gathereth them for him that will be mercifull vnto the poore.
10 He that causeth the righteous to go astray by an euill way, shall fall into his owne pit, and the vpright shall inherite good things.
13 He that hideth his sinnes, shall not prosper: but he that confesseth, and forsaketh them, shall haue mercy.
16 A prince destitute of vnderstanding, is also a great oppressour: but hee that hateth couetousnes, shall prolong his dayes.
17 A man that doeth violence against the blood of a person, shall flee vnto the graue, and they shall not stay him.
19 He that tilleth his land, shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth the idle, shall be filled with pouertie.
20 A faythfull man shall abound in blessings, and he that maketh haste to be riche, shall not be innocent.
23 He that rebuketh a man, shall finde more fauour at length, then he that flattereth with his tongue.
24 Hee that robbeth his father and mother, and sayth, It is no transgression, is the companion of a man that destroyeth.
25 He that is of a proude heart, stirreth vp strife: but he that trusteth in the Lord, shall be fatte.
26 Hee that trusteth in his owne heart, is a foole: but he that walketh in wisdome, shall be deliuered.
27 He that giueth vnto the poore, shall not lacke: but he that hideth his eyes, shall haue many curses.
