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.24
The hand of the diligent shall bear rule : but the slothfula shall be under tribute.25Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop : but a goodword maketh it glad .
The righteous is more excellentb than his neighbour: but the way of the wickedseduceth them.
The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligentman is precious.
