A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth, but the soul of the transgressor shall eat violence.
He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life, but he that openeth wide his lips shall meet destruction.
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing, but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
A righteous man hateth lying, but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way, but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
There is one that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing; there is one that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
