To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Hear ; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
A false witness shall perish : but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Yea, my reins shall rejoice , when thy lips speak right things.
Thine eyes shall behold strange women , and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
