The labour of the righteous tendeth to life:
the fruit of the wicked to sin.
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
He that hideth hatred with lying lips,
and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin:
but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
The tongue of the just is as choice silver:
the heart of the wicked is little worth.
The lips of the righteous feed many:
but fools die for want of wisdom.
The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich,
and he addeth no sorrow with it.
It is as sport to a fool to do mischief:
but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him:
but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more:
but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
