He who diligently seeks good seeks [God's] favor, but he who searches after evil, it shall come upon him.
He who leans on, trusts in, and is confident in his riches shall fall, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like a green bough.
He who troubles his own house shall inherit the wind, and the foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart.
The fruit of the [uncompromisingly] righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise captures human lives [for God, as a fisher of men--he gathers and receives them for eternity].
Proverb 11: 27-30
