Proverbs 18 (KJV)

5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.

9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.

12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity (physical or mental weakness); but a wounded spirit who can bear?

15 The heart of the prudent (careful) getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions (arguments) are like the bars of a castle.

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

23 The poor useth intreaties (beg, beseech); but the rich answereth roughly.

24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
