2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of the foolish poureth out folly. 2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
3 The eyes of Jehovah are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. 3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
4 Gentleness of tongue is a tree of life; but crookedness therein is a breaking of the spirit. 4 The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction; but he that regardeth reproof becometh prudent. 5 A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
6 In the house of a righteous [man] is much treasure; but in the revenue of a wicked [man] is disturbance. 6 The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings them trouble.
