Proverbs 12:14–23

14  zA man shall be asatisfied with good by athe fruit of his mouth:

And the brecompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.

15  cThe way of a fool is right in his own eyes:

But he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

16  dA fool’s wrath is presently known:

But a prudent man covereth shame.

17  He that espeaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness:

But ea false witness deceit.

18  eeThere is that fspeaketh glike the piercings of a sword:

But the tongue of the wise is hhealth.

19  The lip of truth shall be established for ever:

But ia lying tongue is but for a moment.

20  Deceit is in the heart of them that kimagine evil:

But to the counsellers of peace is joy.

21  lThere shall no evil happen to the just:

But the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

22  mLying lips are mnabomination to the Lord:

But they that deal truly are his delight.

23  oA prudent man concealeth knowledge:

But othe heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
