2Commend not a man for his beauty; neither abhor a man for his outward appearance. 3The bee is little among such as fly; but her fruit is the chief of sweet things. 4Boast not of thy clothing and raiment, and exalt not thyself in the day of honour: for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works among men are hidden. 5Many kings have sat down upon the ground; and one that was never thought of hath worn the crown.6Many mighty men have been greatly disgraced; and the honourable delivered into other men's hands. 7Blame not before thou hast examined the truth: understand first, and then rebuke. 8Answer not before thou hast heard the cause: neither interrupt men in the midst of their talk.
