||To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man
knowledge and discretion.
||Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep
||My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound
wisdom and discretion:
||As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman
which is without discretion.
||Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is
that is destroyed for want of judgment.
||He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his
neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
||The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is
his glory to pass over a transgression.
||A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but
the simple pass on, and are punished.
||Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover
not a secret to another:
||He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging
not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
