12:11 He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread; But he that followeth after vain `persons' is void of understanding.
12:13 In the transgression of the lips is a snare to the evil man; But the righteous shall come out of trouble.
12:14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth; And the doings of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
12:18 There is that speaketh rashly like the piercings of a sword; But the tongue of the wise is health.
12:27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting; But the precious substance of men `is to' the diligent.
