18:4 The words of a man's mouth are `as' deep waters; The wellspring of wisdom is `as' a flowing brook.
18:5 To respect the person of the wicked is not good, `Nor' to turn aside the righteous in judgment.
18:17 He that pleadeth his cause first `seemeth' just; But his neighbor cometh and searcheth him out.
18:19 A brother offended `is harder to be won' than a strong city; And `such' contentions are like the bars of a castle.
18:20 A man's belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.
18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
18:24 He that maketh many friends `doeth it' to his own destruction; But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
