Proverbs 12:22-24 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
but those who act faithfully are his delight.
23 A prudent man conceals his knowledge,
but fools proclaim their folly.
24 The hand of the diligent will rule,
while the slothful will be put to forced labor.
