To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.
Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
