“The words of a wise mans mouth are gratious: but the lips of a foole will swallow vp himselfe.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. Who so remoueth stones, shall be hurt therewith: and hee that cleaueth wood, shalbe endangered thereby. 10. If the yron be blunt, and he doe not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisedome is profitable to direct. 11. Surely the serpent will bite without inchauntment, and a babbler is no better. 12. The words of a wise mans mouth are gratious: but the lips of a foole will swallow vp himselfe. 13. The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishnesse: and the end of his talke is mischieuous madnesse. 14. A foole also is full of words; a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall bee after him who can tell him? 15. The labour of the foolish wearyeth euery one of them; because hee knoweth not how to goe to the citie.
