13  On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found,

but xa rod is for the back of him who ylacks sense.

23  Doing wrong is jlike a joke to a fool,

but kwisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding.

15  oGood sense wins pfavor,

but the way of the treacherous is their ruin.1

nA scoffer seeks wisdom oin vain,

but pknowledge is easy for a man of understanding.

The wisdom of the prudent is to discern his way,

but the folly of fools is deceiving.

15  zThe simple believes everything,

but the prudent gives thought to his steps.

33  Wisdom brests in the heart of a man of understanding,

but it makes itself known even in the midst of fools.1

14  zThe heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,

but the mouths of fools feed on folly.

21  lFolly is a joy to him who lacks sense,

but a man of understanding mwalks straight ahead.

16  iHow much better to get wisdom than jgold!

To get understanding is to be chosen rather than ksilver.

21  The wise of heart is called discerning,

and sweetness of speech rincreases persuasiveness.

10  A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding

than a hundred blows into a fool.

24  sThe discerning sets his face toward wisdom,

but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.

15  An intelligent heart acquires knowledge,

and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

lWhoever gets sense loves his own soul;

he who keeps understanding will mdiscover good.

The purpose in a man’s heart is like gdeep water,

but a man of understanding will draw it out.

12  qThe hearing ear and the seeing eye,

rthe Lord has made them both.

The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding,

but ma companion of gluttons shames his father.
