Proverbs 10:11-15 The speech of the righteous is a fountain of life,
but the speech of the wicked is a cover for violence. 12 Hate stirs up disputes,
but love covers all kinds of transgressions. 13 On the lips of the intelligent is found wisdom,
but a stick is in store for the back of a fool.
14 Wise people hide their knowledge,
but when a fool speaks, ruin is imminent. 15 The wealth of the rich is his fortified city;
the ruin of the poor is their poverty.
