8 The words of a talebearer are as dainty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
15 The heart of an intelligent man getteth knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city; and contentions are as the bars of a palace.
20 A man's belly is satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; with the increase of his lips is he satisfied.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
