8 What is a human being, what purpose does he serve? What is good and what is bad for him?
11 This is why the Lord is patient with them and pours out his mercy on them.
15 My child, do not temper your favours with blame nor any of your gifts with words that hurt.
18 A fool will offer nothing but insult, and a grudging gift makes the eyes smart.
20 Examine yourself before judgement comes, and on the day of visitation you will be acquitted.
21 Humble yourself before you fall ill, repent as soon as the sin is committed.
22 Let nothing prevent your discharging a vow in good time, and do not wait till death to set matters right.
26 The time slips by between dawn and dusk, everything passes quickly for the Lord.
29 Those who understand sayings have toiled for their wisdom and have poured out accurate maxims.
31 If you allow yourself to satisfy your desires, this will make you the laughing-stock of your enemies.
