19:23 The fear of Jehovah `tendeth' to life; And he `that hath it' shall abide satisfied; He shall not be visited with evil.
19:24 The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish, And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.

19:26 He that doeth violence to his father, and chaseth away his mother, Is a son that causeth shame and bringeth reproach.
