Better is a dry morsel with quietness,
than a house full of feasting with strife.
2עֶֽבֶד ־ מַשְׂכִּ֗יל יִ֭מְשֹׁל בְּבֵ֣ן מֵבִ֑ישׁ וּבְת֥וֹךְ אַ֝חִ֗ים יַחֲלֹ֥ק נַחֲלָֽה ׃Prv 17:2
A servant who deals wisely will rule over a son who causes shame,
and shall have a part in the inheritance among the brothers.

but Yahweh tests the hearts.

He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished.

Children’s children are the crown of old men;
the glory of children are their parents.

Arrogant speech isn’t fitting for a fool,
much less do lying lips fit a prince.
8אֶֽבֶן ־ חֵ֣ן הַ֭שֹּׁחַד בְּעֵינֵ֣י בְעָלָ֑יו אֶֽל ־ כָּל ־ אֲשֶׁ֖ר יִפְנֶ֣ה יַשְׂכִּֽיל ׃Prv 17:8

wherever he turns, he prospers.

than a hundred lashes into a fool.

An evil man seeks only rebellion;
therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

evil shall not depart from his house.

He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous,
both of them alike are an abomination to Yahweh.

A friend loves at all times;
and a brother is born for adversity.

and becomes collateral in the presence of his neighbor.

The father of a fool has no joy.

and bitterness to her who bore him.

Also to punish the righteous is not good,
nor to flog officials for their integrity.

He who spares his words has knowledge.
He who is even tempered is a man of understanding.

When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning.
