3. As the heavens, (shamayim #8065) height, (rum #7312) and the earths, (eretz #776) depths, (omeq #6011) the heart, (leb #3820) of kings, (melek #4428) is unfathomable, (ayin #369).
4. Remove, (hagah #1898) the dross, (sig #5509) from the silver, (keseph #3701) and comes forth, (yatza #3318) a vessel, (keli #3627 from kala) for the silversmith, (tzaraph #6884);
5. take away, (hagah #1898) the wicked, (rasha #7563) from facing, (paneh #6440 from pahah) the king, (melek #4428) and his throne, (kisse #3678) will be established, (kun #3559) in Righteousness, (Tzeddiq #6664)

11. Like (blowing) fruit trees, (tappuach #8598 from naphach) of gold, (zahab #2091) in the image/imagination/appearance, (maskith #4906 from sekvi) of silver, (keseph #3701) is a word, (davar #1697 from dabar), spoken, (dabar #1696) fitly/like a revolving wheel, in season, (ophen #655 from ophan).
12. Like an ring/earring, (nezem #5141) of gold, (zahab #2091) or an ornament/jewels, (chali #2481), of fine/pure gold, (kethem #3800) is a Wise, (Chakam #2450) Reprover, (Yakach #3198) to a listening, (shama #8085) ear, (ozen #241).

15. Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
16. If you find honey, eat just enough—too much of it, and you will vomit.
17. Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house—too much of you, and they will hate you.
18. Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is one who gives false testimony against a neighbor.
19. Like a broken tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in a time of trouble.
20. Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar poured on a wound, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
21. If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.
23. Like a north wind that brings unexpected rain is a sly tongue—which provokes a horrified look.
24. Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
25. Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.
26. Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.
27. It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep.
28. Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.
