Ecclesiasticus 20:18

“To slip vpon a pauement, is better then to slip with the tongue: so, the fall of the wicked shall come speedily.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 20:18

15. Hee giueth little and vpbraideth much; hee openeth his mouth like a crier; to day he lendeth, and to morrow will he aske it againe: such an one is to be hated of God and man. 16. The foole saith, I haue no friends, I haue no thanke for all my good deeds: and they that eate my bread speake euill of me. 17. How oft, and of how many shall he be laughed to scorne? for hee knoweth not aright what it is to haue; and it is all one vnto him, as if he had it not. 18. To slip vpon a pauement, is better then to slip with the tongue: so, the fall of the wicked shall come speedily. 19. An vnseasonable tale will alwayes be in the mouth of the vnwise. 20. A wise sentence shall be reiected when it commeth out of a fools mouth: for he will not speake it in due season. 21. There is that is hindred from sinning through want: and when hee taketh rest, he shall not be troubled.
