    but the root of the righteous will never be moved.
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
    but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
The thoughts of the righteous are just;
    the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.
The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
    but the mouth of the upright delivers them.
The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
    but the house of the righteous will stand.
A man is commended according to his good sense,
    but one of twisted mind is despised.
Better to be lowly and have a servant
    than to play the great man and lack bread.
10 Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast,
    but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.

  1. 18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,
    but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
    19 Truthful lips endure forever,
    but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

  2. 12:1 “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid” NIV

    12:16 “A fool shows his annoyance at once but a prudent man overlooks an insult.”

    And I too, Jim have an excellent wife and verse 4 made me appreciate her as well!

  3. Diligence is of great value.

    The hand of the diligent will rule,
    But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.

    The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,
    But diligence is man’s precious possession.
