A heart at peace gives life to the body,
but envy rots the bones.
Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker,
but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.
When calamity comes, the wicked are brought down,
but even in death the righteous seek refuge in God.
Wisdom reposes in the heart of the discerning
and even among fools she lets herself be known.
Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin condemns any people.
