Proverbs 18:17-24

17The one who first states a case seems right,
until the other comes and cross-examines.
18Casting the lot puts an end to disputes
and decides between powerful contenders.
19An ally offended is stronger than a city;
such quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
20From the fruit of the mouth one’s stomach is satisfied;
the yield of the lips brings satisfaction.
21Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
22He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
and obtains favor from the Lord.
23The poor use entreaties,
but the rich answer roughly.
24Some friends play at friendship
but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin.
