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.

The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold,
but Yahweh tests the hearts.
4מֵ֭רַע מַקְשִׁ֣יב עַל ־ שְׂפַת ־ אָ֑וֶן שֶׁ֥קֶר מֵ֝זִין עַל ־ לְשׁ֥וֹן הַוֹּֽת ׃Prv 17:4

A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.

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.
7לֹא ־ נָאוָ֣ה לְנָבָ֣ל שְׂפַת ־ יֶ֑תֶר אַ֝֗ף כִּֽי ־ לְנָדִ֥יב שְׂפַת ־ שָֽׁקֶר ׃Prv 17:7
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
A bribe is a precious stone in the eyes of him who gives it;
wherever he turns, he prospers.

He who covers an offense promotes love;
but he who repeats a matter separates best friends.

A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding
than a hundred lashes into a fool.

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

Whoever rewards evil for good,
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.

since he has no understanding?

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.

to pervert the ways of justice.

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.
