'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; but she that doeth shamefully is as rottenness in his bones.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 The thoughts of the righteous are right; but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 He that tilleth his ground shall have plenty of bread; but he that followeth after vain things is void of understanding.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 The wicked desireth the prey of evil men; but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 In the transgression of the lips is a snare to the evil man; but the righteous cometh out of trouble.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the doings of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 The way of a fool is straight in his own eyes; but he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 A fool's vexation is presently known; but a prudent man concealeth shame.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 He that breatheth forth truth uttereth righteousness; but a false witness deceit.
