4 And the heart of the hurried, shall take note of knowledge, And the tongue of stammerers, shall make haste to speak plainly. 5 A base man, shall no longer be called, noble, - Nor, knave, be named, liberal; 6 For, a base man, with baseness, will speak, And, his heart, will practise iniquity, - Practising profanity, And speaking, against Yahweh that which misleadeth, Emptying the soul of the hungry, And the drink of the thirsty, he causeth to fail;
