When the wicked cometh, then cometh also con
tempt, And with ignominy reproach.
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, And the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, To overthrow the righteous in judgment.
A fool's lips enter into contention,
A fool's mouth is his destruction,
The words of a talebearer are as wounds,
He also that is slothful in his work
Is brother to him that is a great waster.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower:
The rich man's wealth is his strong city,
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, And before honour is humility.
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, It is folly and shame unto him.
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity;
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge;
A man's gift maketh room for him,
He that is first in his own cause seemeth just;
The lot causeth contentions to cease,
A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong
city: And their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his
mouth; And with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
