It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgement.
Wisdom is before him that has understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
Show us your mercy, O Lord, and grant us your salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
The heart of him that has understanding seeks knowledge: but the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.
The simple believes every word: but the prudent man looks well to his going.
He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
The mouth of the just brings forth wisdom: but the froward (perverse) tongue shall be cut out (destroyed, fail, be in lack or want).
All nations whom you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord; and shall glorify your name. For you are great, and do wondrous things: you are God alone.
Rejoice the soul of your servant: for unto you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon you.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established (firm, prosperous).
Length of days is in her (wisdom's) right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
And I will make you unto this people a fenced brasen (brass, bronze) wall: and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you: for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the Lord. And I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but you excel them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
Because you have made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, your habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
