Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
Open rebuke is better than secret love.
Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
1 John 1:8-10
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
