“Who can find a wife with a strong character?
She is worth far more than jewels.
She keeps a close eye on the conduct of her family,
and she does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children and her husband
stand up and bless her.
In addition, he sings her praises, by saying,
‘Many women have done noble work,
but you have surpassed them all!’” (Proverbs 31:10, 27-29)
You will say the wrong thing
if you talk too much—
so be sensible and watch
what you say (Proverbs 10:19)
The stupidity of a person turns his life upside down,
and his heart rages against Yahweh (Proverbs 15:3)
A person thinks all his ways are pure,
but Yahweh weighs motives (Proverbs 16:2)
Whoever pursues righteousness and mercy
will find life, righteousness, and honor (Proverbs 21:21)
“Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die. Don’t try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it.” (Proverbs 24:11-12)
Whoever works his land will have plenty to eat,
but the one who chases unrealistic dreams has no sense (Proverbs 12:11)
