Gleanings from Proverbs 19–Part I

Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in speech and is a fool.

Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who hurries his footsteps errs.

The foolishness of man ruins his way, and his heart rages against the Lord.

A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who tells lies will perish.

A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression.

He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, but he who is careless of conduct will die.
