Proverbs 23

Pro 23:9  Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Pro 23:10  Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
Pro 23:11  For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
Pro 23:12  Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
Pro 23:13  Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
Pro 23:14  Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
Pro 23:15  My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
Pro 23:16  Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
Pro 23:17  Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.
Pro 23:18  For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
Pro 23:19  Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

I love the last three verses there.  We're not to envy sinners, though they may look successful now.  Our expectation and our hope isn't in this world but the next.
