“He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life: but hee that openeth wide his lips, shall haue destruction.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. A wise sonne heareth his fathers instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. 2. A man shall eate good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soule of the transgressours, shall eate violence. 3. He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life: but hee that openeth wide his lips, shall haue destruction. 4. The soule of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soule of the diligent shall be made fat. 5. A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and commeth to shame. 6. Righteousnesse keepeth him that is vpright in the way: but wickednesse ouerthroweth the sinner.
