Proverbs 5:22; Proverbs 6:2; Proverbs 11:6; Proverbs 16:32 (New American Standard)
His own iniquities will capture the wicked, And he will be held with the cords of his sin.
If you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth,
The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the treacherous will be caught by their own greed.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city.
