1 Any friend will say, 'I am your friend too,' but some friends are friends only in name.
3 O evil inclination, why were you created, to cover the earth with deceit?
4 One kind of comrade congratulates a friend in prosperity but in time of trouble appears on the other side.
6 Do not forget the genuine friend, do not push him out of mind once you are rich.
7 Any adviser will offer advice, but some are governed by self-interest.
11 Do not consult a woman about her rival, or a coward about war, a merchant about prices, or a buyer about selling, anyone mean about gratitude, or anyone selfish about kindness, a lazy fellow about any sort of work, or a casual worker about finishing a job, an idle servant about a major undertaking-- do not rely on these for any advice.
14 since a person's soul often gives a clearer warning than seven watchmen perched on a watchtower.
18 good and evil, life and death, and mistress of them always is the tongue.
22 Another considers himself wise and proclaims his intellectual conclusions as certainties.
23 But the truly wise instructs his people and his intellectual conclusions are certainties.
24 The wise is showered with blessings, and all who see him will call him happy.
25 Human life lasts a number of days, but the days of Israel are beyond counting.
28 for not everything is good for everybody, nor does everybody like everything.
