15 The 1way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
17 He who speaks truth tells what is right, But a false witness, deceit.
18 There is one who 3speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the 4tongue of the wise brings healing.
19 Truthful lips will be established forever, But a 5lying tongue is only for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy.
21 6No * harm befalls the righteous, But the wicked are filled with trouble.
22 7Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
