11 The a of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the b of the upright shall flourish.
12 There is a a which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of b.

15 The simple believeth every word: but the a man looketh well to his going.
16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is a.

19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
20 The a is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many b.
21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the a, b is he.
22 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.
23 In all a there is profit: but the b of the lips tendeth only to penury.
24 The crown of the wise is their riches: but the a of fools is folly.

26 In the a of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
28 In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.

31 He that a the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.

33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.
34 a exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
35 The king’s favour is toward a wise servant: but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.
