Proverbs 10:23; Proverbs 11:12; Proverbs 15:21; Proverbs 17:27; Proverbs 20:5

23  Doing wrong is jlike a joke to a fool,

but kwisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding.


12  Whoever qbelittles his neighbor lacks sense,

but a man of understanding remains silent.


21  lFolly is a joy to him who lacks sense,

but a man of understanding mwalks straight ahead.


27  Whoever wrestrains his words has knowledge,

and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.


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

but a man of understanding will draw it out.
