7 nThe lips of the wise spread knowledge;
14 zThe heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
20 kA wise son makes a glad father,
but a foolish man despises his mother.
21 lFolly is a joy to him who lacks sense,
but a man of understanding mwalks straight ahead.
24 The path of life leads upward pfor the prudent,
that he may turn away from Sheol beneath.
