“There is gold, and a multitude of Rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious iewell.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. The hearing eare, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made euen both of them. 13. Loue not sleepe, lest thou come to pouertie: open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. 14. It is nought, it is nought (saith the buyer:) but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth. 15. There is gold, and a multitude of Rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious iewell. 16. Take his garment that is suerty for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. 17. Bread of deceit is sweet to a man: but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with grauell. 18. Euery purpose is established by counsell: and with good aduice make warre.
