On the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found, but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
Wise men lay up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
The rich man's wealth is his strong city; the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
The labor of the righteous tendeth to life, the fruit of the wicked to sin.
He that keepeth instruction is in the way of life, but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth slander, is a fool.
In the multitude of words there lacketh not sin, but he that restraineth his lips is wise.
The tongue of the just is as choice silver; the heart of the wicked is of little worth.
The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for want of wisdom.
The blessings of the LORD maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.
It is as sport to a fool to do mischief, but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
