Proverbs 26:15-25

15 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grievetha him to bring it again to his mouth.
16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
17 He that passeth by, and meddlethb with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
18 As a mad man who casteth firebrands,c arrows, and death,
19 So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
20 Where nod wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious* man to kindle strife.
22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
23 Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross.
24 He that hateth dissemblethe with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
25 When he speakethf fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
