There is deceit in the hearts of those who plot evil,
but joy for those who promote peace.
No harm befalls the righteous,
but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in men who are truthful.
A prudent man keeps his knowledge to himself,
but the heart of fools blurts out folly.
Diligent hands will rule,
but laziness ends in slave labor.
An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up.
