Proverbs 10:11-15 The speech of the righteous is a fountain of life,

but a stick is in store for the back of a fool.
14 Wise people hide their knowledge,

Proverbs 9:13-18 The foolish woman is coarse; she doesn’t think, and she doesn’t know a thing. 14 She sits at the door of her house or on a seat at the heights of the city, 15 calling to those who pass by, to those going straight along their ways, 16 “Whoever is unsure of himself, turn in here!” To someone weak-willed she says, 17 “Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is pleasant.” 18 But he doesn’t realize that the dead are there, and that those who accept her invitat
Proverbs 9:7-12 “He who corrects a scoffer only gets insulted; reproving a wicked man becomes his blemish. 8 If you reprove a scoffer, he will hate you; if you reprove a wise man, he will love you. 9 Give to a wise man, and he grows still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will learn still more. 10 The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of holy ones is understanding. 11 For with me, your days will be increased; years will be added to your life. 12 If y
