The 1way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wiseman is he who listens to counsel.
A 2fool'sanger is known at once, But a prudentmanconcealsdishonor.
He who aspeakstruthtellswhat is right, But a falsewitness, deceit.
18There is one who 3speaksrashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the 4tongue of the wisebringshealing.
19Truthfullips will be establishedforever, But a 5lyingtongue is only for a moment.
20Deceit is in the heart of those who deviseevil, But counselors of peace have joy.
216Noharmbefalls the righteous, But the wicked are filled with trouble.
227Lyinglips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who dealfaithfully are His delight.
