5.7. Do not delay to turn to the Lord,nor postpone it from day to day;for suddenly the wrath of the Lord will go forth,and at the time of punishment you will perish. 5.7. When you gain a friend, gain him through testing,and do not trust him hastily. 10.26. Do not make a display of your wisdom when you do your work,nor glorify yourself at a time when you are in want. 10.26. For it is easy in the sight of the Lord to reward a man on the day of death according to his conduct. 18.15. My son, do not mix reproach with your good deeds,nor cause grief by your words when you present a gift. 18.18. A fool is ungracious and abusive,and the gift of a grudging man makes the eyes dim. 18.21. Before falling ill, humble yourself,and when you are on the point of sinning, turn back. 18.22.
