But only that his heart may reveal itself.

And with ignominy cometh reproach.

A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth;
With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:21 -
Death and life are in the power of the tongue;
And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:22 -
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
And obtaineth favor of Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:23 -
The poor useth entreaties;
But the rich answereth roughly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:24 -
He that maketh many friends doeth it to his own destruction;
But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
