10:5 He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
12:11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
12:24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.

22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
