Proverbs 14: 1-9

14The wise woman* builds her house,
   but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
2 Those who walk uprightly fear the Lord,
   but one who is devious in conduct despises him.
3 The talk of fools is a rod for their backs,*
   but the lips of the wise preserve them.
4 Where there are no oxen, there is no grain;
   abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.
5 A faithful witness does not lie,
   but a false witness breathes out lies.
6 A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain,
   but knowledge is easy for one who understands.
7 Leave the presence of a fool,
   for there you do not find words of knowledge.
8 It is the wisdom of the clever to understand where they go,
   but the folly of fools misleads.
9 Fools mock at the guilt-offering,*
   but the upright enjoy God’s favour.
