22:18 For sweet shall they be, when thou shalt keep them in thine inmost mind, they shall fit well together, upon thy lips.
22:20 Have I not written for thee noble things, with counsels and knowledge:
22:21 To cause thee to know the meaning of faithful sayings, that thou mayest give back faithful sayings to them who ask thee.

22:28 ¶ Do not move back the ancient boundary, which thy father's made.
22:29 ¶ Seest thou a man prompt in his business? before kings, shall he stand, he shall not stand before men who are obscure.
