4Riches profit not in the day of wrath: But righteousness delivereth from death.
5The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: But the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
6The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: But transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.
7When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: And the hope of unjust men perisheth.
8The righteous is delivered out of trouble, And the wicked cometh in his stead.
9A hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: But through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

20They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord: But such as are upright in their way are his delight.
21Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: But the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
22As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, So is a fair woman which is without discretion.

25The liberal soul shall be made fat: And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
26He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: But blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
27He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: But he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
28He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: But the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
29He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: And the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
30The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; And he that winneth souls is wise.
31Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: Much more the wicked and the sinner.
