Proverbs 12:8-18

8 For his mouth of good sense, a man will be recommended, but he who is of perverse {mind} will be despised.
9 It is better to be lowly and a servant {to someone} than self-glorifying and lacking food.
10 The righteous knows the life of his animal, but the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
11 He who works his land will have plenty of food, but he who follows worthless things lacks {sense}.
12 The wicked covets the proceeds of evil, but the root of the righteous {bears fruit}.
13 By the transgression of lips, evil is ensnared, but the righteous escapes from trouble.
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.
