15 tWhoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer harm,
but he who hates striking hands in pledge is secure.
16 uA gracious woman gets honor,
and vviolent men get riches.
17 wA man who is kind benefits himself,
but a cruel man hurts himself.
but one who xsows righteousness gets a sure reward.
19 Whoever is steadfast in righteousness ywill live,
but zhe who pursues evil will die.
but gthe offspring of the righteous will be delivered.
22 Like ha gold ring in a pig’s snout
is a beautiful woman without discretion.
ithe expectation of the wicked in wrath.
