11 uThe mouth of the righteous is va fountain of life,
but the mouth of the wicked nconceals violence.
13 On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found,
14 The wise zlay up knowledge,
but athe mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
20 The tongue of the righteous is gchoice silver;
the heart of the wicked is of little worth.
21 The lips of the righteous feed many,
but fools die for hlack of sense.
31 xThe mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,
but the perverse tongue will be cut off.
32 The lips of the righteous yknow what is acceptable,
but the mouth of the wicked, zwhat is perverse.
