and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
he who provokes him to anger forfeits his life.
but every fool will be quarreling.
he will seek at harvest and have nothing.
but a man of understanding will draw it out.
but a faithful man who can find?
blessed are his sons after him!
winnows all evil with his eyes.
I am pure from my sin”?
are both alike an abomination to the Lord.
whether what he does is pure and right.
the Lord has made them both.
open your eyes, and you will have plenty of bread.
but when he goes away, then he boasts.
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
and hold him in pledge when he gives surety for foreigners.
but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.
by wise guidance wage war.
therefore do not associate with one who speaks foolishly.
his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.
will in the end not be blessed.
wait for the Lord, and he will help you.
and false scales are not good.
how then can man understand his way?
and to reflect only after making his vows.
and drives the wheel over them.
searching all his innermost parts.
and his throne is upheld by righteousness.g
but the beauty of old men is their gray hair.
strokes make clean the innermost parts.
