Proverbs 18:6-12

‚ÄčA fool's lips bring strife,
and a fool's mouth invites a flogging.
The mouths of fools are their ruin,
and their lips a snare to themselves.
The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
they go down into the inner parts of the body.
One who is slack in work
is close kin to a vandal.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous run into it and are safe.
The wealth of the rich is their strong city;
in their imagination it is like a high wall.
Before destruction one's heart is haughty,
but humility goes before honor.
