Today’s country: Aruba
Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
The foolishness of a man twists his way,
And his heart frets against the Lord.
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression.
Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
Chasten your son while there is hope,
And do not set your heart on his destruction.
There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.
What is desired in a man is kindness,
And a poor man is better than a liar.
The fear of the Lord leads to life,
And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;
He will not be visited with evil.
