4 An evildoer listens to wicked lips,
and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.
7 Fine speech is not wbecoming to a fool;
still less is xfalse speech to a prince.
20 mA man of crooked heart does not discover good,
and one with a dishonest tongue falls into calamity.
27 Whoever wrestrains his words has knowledge,
and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
28 Even a fool xwho keeps silent is considered wise;
when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
