than one who is crooked in speech and is a fool.
and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
his heart rages against the Lord.
but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
and he who breathes out lies will not escape.
and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
how much more do his friends go far from him!
He pursues them with words, but does not have them.c
he who keeps understanding will discover good.
and he who breathes out lies will perish.
much less for a slave to rule over princes.
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
but his favor is like dew on the grass.
and a wife’s quarreling is a continual dripping of rain.
but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
and an idle person will suffer hunger.
he who despises his ways will die.
and he will repay him for his deed.
do not set your heart on putting him to death.
for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
that you may gain wisdom in the future.
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
and a poor man is better than a liar.
and whoever has it rests satisfied;
he will not be visited by harm.
and will not even bring it back to his mouth.
reprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
is a son who brings shame and reproach.
and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
and beating for the backs of fools.
Proverbs, 19 chapter. English Standard Version.
