Proverbs 18:4; Proverbs 18:20–21

The words of a man's mouth are adeep waters;

the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.


20  sFrom the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach is satisfied;

he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.

21  tDeath and life are in the power of the tongue,

and those who love it will eat its fruits.
