In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise .
The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged .
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper : but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy .
Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith , It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer .
In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
When the wicked are multiplied , transgression increaseth : but the righteous shall see their fall.
