Verse 21
For - When a man hath once accustomed himself to take bribes, a very small advantage will make him sell justice.

Verse 24
The same - Is a thief and robber.

Verse 25
Fat - Shall live happily and comfortably.

Verse 26
Wisely - Distrusting his own judgment, and seeking the advice of others, and especially of God.
