The good things a man says benefit him. But a liar loves to hurt others.
Anyone who guards what he says guards his life. But anyone who speaks without thinking will be destroyed.
People who refuse to work want things and get nothing. But the longings of people who work hard are completely satisfied.
Those who do right hate what is false. But those who do wrong bring shame and dishonor.
Doing right guards those who are honest. But evil destroys those who are sinful.
