Proverbs 18:6–8; Proverbs 18:13

A fool’s lips walk into a fight,

and his mouth invites da beating.

eA fool’s mouth is his ruin,

and his lips are a snare to his soul.

fThe words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;

they go down into gthe inner parts of the body.

13  If one gives an answer obefore he hears,

it is his folly and shame.
