14 The wise zlay up knowledge,
but athe mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
13 An evil man is ensnared uby the transgression of his lips,
vbut the righteous escapes from trouble.
3 tWhoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
8 They are brought to ruin, with their own xtongues turned against them;
let nthe mischief of their lips overwhelm them!
but vthe lips of a fool consume him.
