Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge,
But he who hates correction is stupid.
A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
Better is the one who is slighted but has a servant,
Than he who honors himself but lacks bread.
A righteous man regards the life of his animal,
He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread,
a prudent man covers shame.
He who speaks truth declares righteousness,
Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad.
The righteous should choose his friends carefully,
For the way of the wicked leads them astray.
In the way of righteousness is life,
And in its pathway there is no death.
