PROV 14:22 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.

PROV 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

PROV 14:24 The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.

PROV 14:25 A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.

PROV 14:26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.

PROV 14:27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

PROV 14:28 In the multitude of people is the king's honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.
