“The lawe of the wise is a fountaine of life, to depart from the snares of death.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. Wealth gotten by vanitie shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour, shall increase. 12. Hope deferred maketh the heart sicke: but when the desire commeth, it is a tree of life. 13. Whoso despiseth the word, shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commaundement, shall be rewarded. 14. The lawe of the wise is a fountaine of life, to depart from the snares of death. 15. Good vnderstanding giueth fauour: but the way of transgressours is hard. 16. Euery prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a foole layeth open his folly. 17. A wicked messenger falleth into mischiefe: but a faithfull ambassadour is health.
