The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
Better a little with fear of the LORD than great wealth and turmoil.
Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.
Folly delights a man who lacks judgment, but a man of understanding keeps a straight course.
The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked, but those of the pure are pleasing to him.
The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
