a honeycomb,Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24Better
a dry morsel with quietness,Than a house full of feasting
strife. Proverbs 17:1He who has knowledge spares his words,
a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace;
he shuts his lips,
he is considered
perceptive. Proverbs 17:27-28
The words of a man’s mouth
deep waters;The wellspring of wisdom
a flowing brook.
not good to show partiality to the wicked,
to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
A fool’s lips enter into contention,
And his mouth calls for blows.
A fool’s mouth
his destruction,And his lips
the snare of his soul.The words of a talebearer
like tasty trifles,And they go down into the inmost body. Proverbs 18:4-8Death and life
in the power of the tongue,And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21Better
the poor who walks in his integrityThan
one who is
perverse in his lips, and is a fool. Proverbs 19-1
