21  The wise in heart shall be called prudent:

And the sweetness of the lips qincreaseth learning.

22  Understanding is ra wellspring of life sunto him that hath it:

But the instruction of fools is folly.

23  tThe heart of the wise teacheth his mouth,

And qaddeth learning to his lips.

24  uPleasant words are as an xhoneycomb,

xSweet to the soul, and yhealth to the bones.
