3:4 So you will find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
3:5 Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, And don`t lean on your own understanding.
3:6 In all your ways acknowledge him, And he will direct your paths.

3:9 Honor Yahweh with your substance, With the first fruits of all your increase:
3:10 So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.
3:12 For whom Yahweh loves, he reproves; Even as a father the son in whom he delights.
3:13 Happy is the man who finds wisdom, The man who gets understanding.

3:26 For Yahweh will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being taken.
3:28 Don`t say to your neighbor, "Go, and come again, Tomorrow I will give," When you have it by you.
3:29 Don`t devise evil against your neighbor, Seeing he dwells securely by you.
3:30 Don`t strive with a man without cause, If he has done you no harm.
3:31 Don`t envy the man of violence. Choose none of his ways.
3:32 For the perverse is an abomination to Yahweh, But his friendship is with the upright.
3:33 The curse of Yahweh is in the house of the wicked, But he blesses the habitation of the righteous.
3:34 Surely he mocks the mockers, But he gives grace to the humble.
3:35 The wise will inherit glory, But shame will be the promotion of fools.
