Proverbs 24:11   Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
Proverbs 24:12   If you say, "See, we did not know this," Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?

Proverbs 24:23   These also are sayings of the wise. To show partiality in judgment is not good.
Proverbs 24:24   He who says to the wicked, "You are righteous," Peoples will curse him, nations will abhor him;

Proverbs 24:31   And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles; Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wall was broken down.
Proverbs 24:32   When I saw, I reflected upon it; I looked, and received instruction.
Proverbs 24:33   "A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,"
Proverbs 24:34   Then your poverty will come as a robber And your want like an armed man.
