Proverbs 12:14-24

14 From the fruit of the mouth of a man, he is filled with good, and the reward of {a man's labor} will return to him.
15 The way of a fool is upright in his [own] eyes, but he who listens to advice [is] wise.
16 As for a fool, {on that very day} he makes his anger known, but he who ignores an insult [is] prudent.
17 He who will speak truth will reveal righteousness, but the witness of falsehood, deceit.
18 There is one who speaks rashly, like the thrust of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
19 A lip of truth endures forever, but a tongue of deception lasts only a moment.
20 Deceit [is] in the heart of {those who plan} evil, but to {those who plan} peace, [there is] joy.
21 {No evil will happen} to the righteous, but the wicked are filled [with] trouble.
22 An abomination of Yahweh are lips of deceit, but they who act faithfully [are] his delight.
23 A clever person conceals knowledge, but the heart of a fool announces folly.
24 The hand of the diligent ones will rule, but the lazy will belong to forced labor.
