Proverbs, Chapter 14: Witless and redundant, but at least it isn't Psalms

Hey, there were women working in construction and demolitions back then! Verse one says Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

Then the inevitable verses about righteousness and stoic silence. Having lots of oxen is the key to success. Of course Jerry Falwell has no comment on how that verse is still relevant today, because he's always silent whenever something contradicts his worldview.

There are some good verses about not suffering fools and finding answers out for yourself. Also some good ones about not getting angry and going off half-cocked and being nice to your neighbours, especially if they're poor.

Work, be honest, hold your tongue, be pious, don't fly off the handle.
