- A rich man may be wise in his own eyes, but a poor man who has discernment sees through him.
- When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, men go into hiding.
- He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
- Blessed is the man who always fears the LORD, but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble.
- Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked man ruling over a helpless people.
