thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he
wanteth. -- 15:7-8
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.
Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.
If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink.
Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.
Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they
any more a reward. -- 9:5
Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart.
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in
the grave, whither thou goest. -- 9:10
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of
understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. For man also knoweth not his time:
as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared
in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them. -- 9:11-12

left hand know what thy right hand doeth: -- 6:2-3
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the
corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their
reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy
Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. -- 6:5-6
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

brother's eye. -- 7:3-5

A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him,
and departed, leaving him half dead....
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an
inn, and took care of him.
And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of
him; and whatsoever thou
spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee....
Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. -- 10:30-37
