32 He who commits adultery lacks sense;
he who does it destroys himself.
33 He will get wounds and dishonor,
and his disgrace will not be wiped away.
7 Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse,
and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.
7 oThe memory of the righteous is a blessing,
but pthe name of the wicked will rot.
11 Even a child pmakes himself known by his acts,
by whether his conduct is pure and upright.1
1 pA good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
14 Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,
rising early in the morning,
will be counted as cursing.
21 wThe crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,
and a man is tested by his praise.
