1. Wise children make their fathers proud of them; foolish ones bring their mothers grief.
2. Wealth you get by dishonesty will do you no good, but honesty can save your life.
3. The Lord will not let good people go hungry, but he will keep the wicked from getting what they want.
4. Being lazy will make you poor, but hard work will make you rich.
5. A sensible person gathers the crops when they are ready; it is a disgrace to sleep through the time of harvest.
6. Good people will receive blessings. The words of the wicked hide a violent nature.
7. Good people will be remembered as a blessing, but the wicked will soon be forgotten.
8. Sensible people accept good advice. People who talk foolishly will come to ruin.
9. Honest people are safe and secure, but the dishonest will be caught.
