Proverbs 18:1-8

1 He who is selfish seeks a craving; against all sound judgment he shows contempt.
2 A fool will not take pleasure in understanding, but in expressing his heart.
3 With the coming of wickedness comes contempt also, and with dishonor, disgrace.
4 Deep waters [are] words of the mouth of a man; a gushing stream [is] a fountain of wisdom.
5 Being partial [to] faces of evil [is] not good, [nor] to subvert the righteous at the judgment.
6 The lips of a fool will bring strife, and his mouth calls out for a flogging.
7 The mouth of a fool [is] ruin to him, and his lips [are] a snare to his soul.
8 The words of a whisper [are] like delicious morsels, and they themselves go down [to] inner parts of the body.
