A man will be commended according to his insight and sound judgment,
But the one who is of a perverse mind will be despised.
Better is he who is lightly esteemed and has a servant,
Than he who [boastfully] honors himself [pretending to be what he is not] and lacks bread.
A righteous man has kind regard for the life of his animal,
But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread,
But he who follows worthless things lacks common sense and good judgment.
