........ On Life and Conduct

22:01 .. A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, favor is better than silver and gold.
22:02 .. The rich and the poor have a common bond, the Lord is the maker of them all.
22:03 .. The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it.
22:04 .. The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor and life.
22:05 .. Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; he who guards himself will be far from them.
22:06 .. Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.
22:07 .. The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.
22:08 .. He who sows iniquity will reap vanity, and the rod of his fury will perish.
22:09 .. He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.
22:10 .. Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out, even strife and dishonor will cease.
22:11 .. He who loves purity of heart and whose speech is gracious, the king is his friend.
22:12 .. The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, but He overthrows the words of the treacherous man.
22:13 .. The sluggard says, “There is a lion outside; I will be killed in the streets!”
22:14 .. The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit; he who is cursed of the Lord will fall into it.
22:15 .. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of discipline will remove it far from him.
22:16 .. He who oppresses the poor to make more for himself or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
22:17 .. Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your mind to my knowledge;
22:18 .. For it will be pleasant if you keep them within you, that they may be ready on your lips.
22:19 .. So that your trust may be in the Lord, I have taught you today, even you.
22:20 .. Have I not written to you excellent things of counsels and knowledge,
22:21 .. To make you know the certainty of the words of truth that you may correctly answer him who sent you?
22:22 .. Do not rob the poor because he is poor, or crush the afflicted at the gate;
22:23 .. For the Lord will plead their case and take the life of those who rob them.
22:24 .. Do not associate with a man given to anger; or go with a hot-tempered man,
22:25 .. Or you will learn his ways and find a snare for yourself.
22:26 .. Do not be among those who give pledges, among those who become guarantors for debts.
22:27 .. If you have nothing with which to pay, why should he take your bed from under you?
22:28 .. Do not move the ancient boundary which your fathers have set.
22:29 .. Do you see a man skilled in his work? he will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.
