10 A vain man through pride causeth debate, And with the counselled 'is' wisdom.
11 Wealth from vanity becometh little, And whoso is gathering by the hand becometh great.
12 Hope prolonged is making the heart sick, And a tree of life 'is' the coming desire.
13 Whoso is despising the Word is destroyed for it, And whoso is fearing the Command is repayed.
14 The law of the wise 'is' a fountain of life, To turn aside from snares of death.
