V2 The king’s fury is like that of a roaring lion; to rouse his anger is to risk your life.

V4 If you won’t plow in the cold, you won’t eat at the harvest.

V5 Though good advice lies deep within a counselor’s heart, the wise man will draw it out.

V6 Most people will tell you what loyal friends they are, but are they telling the truth?
