But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. They have no idea what they are stumbling over.
Wise people think before they act; fools don’t—and even brag about their foolishness.
The instruction of the wise is like a life-giving fountain; those who accept it avoid the snares of death.
People who despise advice are asking for trouble; those who respect a command will succeed.
It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent.
Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.
