He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good, and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent, and sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it, but the instruction of fools is folly.
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
Pleasant words are as a honeycomb: sweet to the soul and health to the bones.
There are ways which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
He that laboreth, laboreth for himself, for his mouth craveth it of him.
A froward man diggeth up evil, and on his lips there is a burning fire.
A froward man soweth strife, and a whisperer separateth closest friends.
A violent man enticeth his neighbor and leadeth him into the way that is not good.
