Proverbs 12:23

23 Prudent people don't flaunt their knowledge; talkative fools broadcast their silliness.

Proverbs 12:23 In-Context

21 No evil can overwhelm a good person, but the wicked have their hands full of it.
22 God can't stomach liars; he loves the company of those who keep their word.
23 Prudent people don't flaunt their knowledge; talkative fools broadcast their silliness.
24 The diligent find freedom in their work; the lazy are oppressed by work.
25 Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up.
