A fool will no longer be called a noble, nor a scoundrel said to be important.
For a fool speaks foolishness and his mind plots iniquity. He lives in a godless way and speaks falsely about the Lord. He leaves the hungry empty and deprives the thirsty of drink.
The scoundrel's weapons are destructive; he hatches plots to destroy the needy with lies, and by charging the poor during a judgment.
But a noble person plans noble things; he stands up for noble causes.
