The plans of the diligent are sure of success.
The Book of Proverbs is sometimes called the book of
Wisdom or the Book of Solomon. It is a collection of
wise sayings from two centuries before Christ.
The plans of the diligent are sure of success, while
those of the wicked lead to poverty.
Those who shut their ears to the cry of the poor will
cry and not be heard.
Whoever seeks a fortune by a lying tongue shall be
rewarded with poverty.
