Many are the plans in a man's heart,
but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.
What a man desires is unfailing love;
better to be poor than a liar.
The fear of the Lord leads to life:
Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.1Ti 4:8
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish;
he will not even bring it back to his mouth!
Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence;
rebuke a discerning man, and he will gain knowledge.
He who robs his father and drives out his mother
is a son who brings shame and disgrace.
Stop listening to instruction, my son,
and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
A corrupt witness mocks at justice,
and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
Penalties are prepared for mockers,
and beatings for the backs of fools.
