23 To make an apt answer is a joy to a man,
and oa word in season, how good it is!
21 The wise of heart is called discerning,
and sweetness of speech rincreases persuasiveness.
sweetness to the soul and whealth to the body.
11 yA word fitly spoken
is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
14 Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,
rising early in the morning,
will be counted as cursing.
