Proverbs 18 ©
Various observations of moral virtues and their contrary vices.
The ewords of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
The rheart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
He that is tfirst in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
The ulot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
A vbrother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
