Proverbs 18.1-12

18The one who lives alone is self-indulgent,
   showing contempt for all who have sound judgement.*
2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
   but only in expressing personal opinion.
3 When wickedness comes, contempt comes also;
   and with dishonour comes disgrace.
4 The words of the mouth are deep waters;
   the fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream.
5 It is not right to be partial to the guilty,
   or to subvert the innocent in judgement.
6 A fool’s lips bring strife,
   and a fool’s mouth invites a flogging.
7 The mouths of fools are their ruin,
   and their lips a snare to themselves.
8 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
   they go down into the inner parts of the body.
9 One who is slack in work
   is close kin to a vandal.
10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
   the righteous run into it and are safe.
11 The wealth of the rich is their strong city;
   in their imagination it is like a high wall.
12 Before destruction one’s heart is haughty,
   but humility goes before honour.
