Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler,
And whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise.
•••
Keeping away from strife is an honor for a man,
But any fool will quarrel.
•••
A righteous man who walks in his integrity
How blessed are his sons after him.
•••
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart,
I am pure from my sin”?
•••
“Bad, bad,” says the buyer,
But when he goes his way, then he boasts.
•••
He who goes about as a slanderer reveals secrets,
Therefore do not associate with a gossip.
•••
Do not say, “I will repay evil”;
Wait for the Lord, and He will save you.
from Proverbs 20

And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth
from Revelation 8

But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
from Revelation 9
