4 The words of a person's mouth are like deep waters, and the fountain of wisdom is like a flowing brook.
8 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down into the person's innermost being.
10 The name of the Lord is like a strong tower; the righteous person runs to it and is set safely on high.
11 The wealth of a rich person is like a strong city, and it is like a high wall in his imagination.
19 A relative offended is harder to reach than a strong city, and disputes are like the barred gates of a fortified citadel.
20 From the fruit of a person's mouth his stomach is satisfied, with the product of his lips is he satisfied.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love its use will eat its fruit.
22 The one who finds a wife finds what is enjoyable, and receives a pleasurable gift from the Lord.
