A wise son [heareth] his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
A man shall eat good by the fruit of [his] mouth: but the soul of the transgressors [shall eat] violence.
He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: [but] he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and [hath] nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
A righteous [man] hateth lying: but a wicked [man] is lothsome, and cometh to shame.
Righteousness keepeth [him that is] upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
