2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of the foolish poureth out folly.
4 Gentleness of tongue is a tree of life; but crookedness therein is a breaking of the spirit.
6 In the house of a righteous man is much treasure; but in the revenue of a wicked man is disturbance.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to Jehovah; but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
9 The way of a wicked man is an abomination to Jehovah; but him that pursueth righteousness he loveth.
11 Sheol and destruction are before Jehovah; how much more then the hearts of the children of men!
14 The heart of an intelligent man seeketh knowledge; but the mouth of the foolish feedeth on folly.
19 The way of the sluggard is as a hedge of thorns; but the path of the upright is made plain.
22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed; but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
28 The heart of a righteous man studieth to answer; but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul; but he that heareth reproof getteth sense.
