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.
A man will be praised according to his insight, but one of perverse mind will be despised.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Truthful lips will be established forever, but a lying tongue is only for a moment.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal faithfully are His delight.
In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.
