1 There is the rebuke that is untimely, and there is the person who keeps quiet, and he is the shrewd one.
3 The person who acknowledges a fault wards off punishment.
6 There is the person who keeps quiet, not knowing how to answer, another keeps quiet, knowing when to speak.
9 There is the person who finds misfortune a boon, and the piece of luck that turns to loss.
11 There is the honour that leads to humiliation, and there are people in a low state who raise their heads.
12 There is the person who buys much for little, yet pays for it seven times over.
14 The gift of the stupid will bring you no advantage, his eyes look for seven times as much in return.
17 those who eat my bread have malicious tongues.' How often he will be laughed at, and by how many!
19 A coarse-grained person is like an indiscreet story endlessly retold by the ignorant.
22 There is a person who courts destruction out of false shame, courts destruction for the sake of a fool's opinion.
23 There is a person who out of false shame makes promises to a friend, and so makes an enemy for nothing.
29 Presents and gifts blind the eyes of the wise and stifle rebukes like a muzzle on the mouth.
