A fool receiveth not the words of prudence: unless thou say those things which are in his heart.
The wicked man, when he is come into the depths of sins, contemneth: but ignominy and reproach follow him.
Words from the mouth of a man are as deep water: and the fountain of wisdom is an overflowing stream.
It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to decline from the truth of judgment.
The lips of a fool intermeddle with strife: and his mouth provoketh quarrels.
The mouth of a fool is his destruction: and his lips are the ruin of his soul.
The words of the double tongued are as if they were harmless: and they reach even to the inner parts of the bowels. Fear casteth down the slothful: and the souls of the effeminate shall be hungry.
He that is loose and slack in his work, is the brother of him that wasteth his own works.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the just runneth to it, and shall be exalted.
The substance of the rich man is the city of his strength, and as a strong wall compassing him about.
Before destruction, the heart of a man is exalted: and before he be glorified, it is humbled.
