The poor is disliked even by his neighbor, but the rich has many friends.
He who despises his neighbor is a sinner, but happy is he who is kind to the poor.
Do they not err that devise evil? Those who devise good meet loyalty and faithfulness.
In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to want.
The crown of the wise is their wisdom, but folly is the garland of fools.

The wicked is overthrown through his evil-doing, but the righteous finds refuge through his integrity.
Wisdom abides in the mind of a man of understanding, but it is not known in the heart of fools.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.
