Servants cannot be corrected by mere words;
though they understand, they will not respond.
Do you see someone who speaks in haste?
There is more hope for a fool than for them.
A servant pampered from youth
will turn out to be insolent.
An angry person stirs up conflict,
and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.
Pride brings a person low,
but the lowly in spirit gain honour.
The accomplices of thieves are their own enemies;
they are put under oath and dare not testify.
Fear of man will prove to be a snare,
but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
Many seek an audience with a ruler,
but it is from the Lord that one gets justice.
The righteous detest the dishonest;
the wicked detest the upright.
