22- The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

23- The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

24- A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.

28- An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.

29- Judgements are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.
