From the Wisdom of King Solomon

  • Acquitting the guilty is as evil as condemning the innocent.
  • Pride precedes a fall.
  • Gossip separates the best of friends.
  • It is better to be patient than powerful.
  • Self control is better than conquering a city.
  • Wisdom is more valuable than gold.
  • Unfailing love and faithfulness make up for many mistakes.
  • Kind words are like honey.
  • When fools keep their mouths closed, they seem intelligent.
  • There are “friends” who destroy each other; but a true friend is closer than a brother.
  • Wealth makes many “friends”.
  • Only fools insist on quarreling.
  • Don’t trap yourself by making rash promises.
  • God is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer sacrifices.
  • The violence of the wicked sweeps them away because they refuse to do what is just.
  • Justice is a joy to the godly but it terrifies wrongdoers.
  • It is better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife.
  • Choose a good reputation over great riches.
  • Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster.
