6 Blessings are upon the head of the righteous; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
13 In the lips of him that hath discernment wisdom is found; But a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not transgression; But he that refraineth his lips doeth wisely.
24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him; And the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
25 When the whirlwind passeth, the wicked is no more; But the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, So is the sluggard to them that send him.
28 The hope of the righteous'shall be gladness; But the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
29 The way of Jehovah is a stronghold to the upright; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
31 The mouth of the righteous bringeth forth wisdom; But the perverse tongue shall be cut off.
