5 Let the wise hear and eincrease in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance,
15 yThe way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
but a wise man listens to advice.
13 A wise son hears his father’s instruction,
but qa scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
10 fBy insolence comes nothing but strife,
but with those who take advice is wisdom.
4 An evildoer listens to wicked lips,
and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.
10 A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding
than a hundred blows into a fool.
18 Whoever yisolates himself seeks his own desire;
he breaks out against all sound judgment.
2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only zin expressing his opinion.
13 If one gives an answer obefore he hears,
it is his folly and shame.
5 The purpose in a man’s heart is like gdeep water,
but a man of understanding will draw it out.
12 Apply your heart to instruction
and your ear to words of knowledge.
