he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

he is ba shield to those who cwalk in integrity,

11  aA false balance is an abomination to the Lord,

bbut a just weight is his delight.

eThe integrity of the upright guides them,

fbut the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.

20  Those of acrooked heart are ban abomination to the Lord,

but those of cblameless ways are dhis delight.

19  Truthful lips endure forever,

but ea lying tongue is but for a moment.

22  hLying lips are ian abomination to the Lord,

jbut those who act faithfully are his delight.

25  A truthful witness saves lives,

but one who lbreathes out lies is deceitful.

13  dRighteous lips are the delight of a king,

and he loves him who speaks what is right.

19  aBetter is a poor person who bwalks in his integrity

than one who is crooked in speech and is a fool.

The righteous who jwalks in his integrity

kblessed are his children after him!

10  oUnequal1 weights and unequal measures

are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

26  Whoever gives an honest answer

kisses the lips.

28  fBe not a witness against your neighbor without cause,

and do not deceive with your lips.

kBetter is a poor man who lwalks in his integrity

than a rich man who is lcrooked in his ways.

13  Whoever xconceals his transgressions will not prosper,

but he who yconfesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

23  Whoever prebukes a man will afterward find more favor

than qhe who flatters with his tongue.
