3 The Lord's eyes see everything; he watches both evil and good people.
4 As a tree gives fruit, healing words give life, but dishonest words crush the spirit.
5 Fools reject their parents' correction, but anyone who accepts correction is wise.
6 Much wealth is in the houses of good people, but evil people get nothing but trouble.
7 Wise people use their words to spread knowledge, but there is no knowledge in the thoughts of fools.
