than great wealth with turmoil.(AB)
17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love
than a fattened calf with hatred.(AC)

but the path of the upright is a highway.
20 A wise son brings joy to his father,(AG)
but a foolish man despises his mother.

to keep them from going down to the realm of the dead.
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud,(AN)
but he sets the widow’s boundary stones in place.(AO)

but he hears the prayer of the righteous.(AV)

and good news gives health to the bones.(AW)

will be at home among the wise.(AX)

but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.(AZ)
