The wickeda is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.14
A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man'shands shall be rendered unto him.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.16
A fool'swrath is presentlybknown : but a prudent man coverethshame.17
He that speakethtruth sheweth forthrighteousness: but a falsewitnessdeceit.18
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.19
The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lyingtongue is but for a moment .
20Deceit is in the heart of them that imagineevil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.21
There shall no evilhappen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.22Lyinglips are abomination to the LORD: but they that dealtruly are his delight.23
A prudentmanconcealethknowledge: but the heart of foolsproclaimethfoolishness.
