12 Whoever qbelittles his neighbor lacks sense,
but a man of understanding remains silent.
18 cThere is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,
but the tongue of the wise brings dhealing.
but jperverseness in it breaks the spirit.
27 yA worthless man plots evil,
23 The north wind brings forth rain,
and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
2 Like xa sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,
ya curse that is causeless does not alight.
