He who provokes him to anger forfeits his own life.
It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife;
but every fool will be quarreling.

therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing.

but a man of understanding will draw it out.
Many men claim to be men of unfailing love,
but who can find a faithful man?

scatters away all evil with his eyes.

I am clean and without sin?”
