Sect. 6. A mean estate is not always to be contemned; nor the rich that is foolish to be had in admiration.

He that is hasty to give credit is light-minded.

There is one that is wise, and teacheth many, and yet is unprofitable to himself.

Be not curious in unnecessary matters.

Whoso regardeth dreams is like him that catcheth at a shadow, and followeth the wind.

Commend not a man for his beauty; neither abhor a man for his outward appearance.

Boast not of thy clothing and raiment, and exalt not thyself in the day of honour.

Be ashamed of revealing secrets. Whoso discovereth secrets loseth his credit.

Do no secret thing before a stranger; for thou knowest not what he will bring forth.

Blessed is he whose conscience hath not condemned him.

If thou seest a man of understanding, get thee betimes unto him, and let thy foot wear the steps of his door.

Love righteousness : for righteousness is immortal.

Sect. 7. Let thy soul love a good servant, and defraud him not of liberty.

Let not the wages of any man which hath wrought for thee, tarry with thee.

Love thy brethren. Hast thou children? Instruct them, and bow down their neck from their youth.

Give not thy son and wife, thy brother and friend, power over thee while thou livest, and give not thy goods to another; lest it repent thee, and thou entreat for the same again. As long as thou livest, and hast breath in thee, give not thyself over to any. For better it is that thy children should seek to thee, than that thou shouldest stand to their courtesy. At the tims when thou shalt end thy days, and finish thy life, distribute thine inheritance.

Blessed is the man that hath a virtuous wife.

A virtuous woman rejoiceth her husband, and he shall fulfil the years of his life in peace.

Hast thou a wife after thy mind? forsake hit not. A good wife is a good portion.

Be not jealous over the wife of thy bosom and teach ber not an evil lesson against thyself.

Well is he that dwelleth with a wife of understanding.

Marry thy daughter, and so shalt thou have performed a weighty matter; but give her to a man of understanding.

Honour thy father with thy whole heart, and forget not the sorrows of thy mother. How canst thou recompense them the things they have done for thee?

Honour thy mother all the days of thy life, and do that which shall please her, and grieve her not. Remember that she saw many dangers for thee.

Help thy father, in his age, and grieve him not as long as he liveth. And if his understanding fail, have patience with him; and despise him not when thou art in thy full strength: for the relieving of thy father shall not be forgotten.
