Proverbs 3:29; Proverbs 6:14; Proverbs 6:18; Proverbs 11:12; Proverbs 12:20; Proverbs 14:22; Proverbs 17:28; Proverbs 20:4 (New American Standard)
Do not devise harm against your neighbor, While he lives securely beside you.
Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,
He who despises his neighbor lacks sense, But a man of understanding keeps silent.
Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy.
Will they not go astray who devise evil? But kindness and truth will be to those who devise good.
Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.
The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, So he begs during the harvest and has nothing.
