Fools...A proverb in the mouth of a fool is like lame legs that hang limp.
Don't answer a fool according to his foolishness, or you'll be like him yourself.
A hateful person...a hateful person disguises himself with his speech and harbours deceit within. When he speaks graciously, don't believe him, for there are seven abominations in his heart. Though his hatred is concealed by deception, his evil will be revealed in the assembly.
Wise conduct...It is the glory of GOd to conceala matter and the glory of kings to investigate a matter. as the heaven is high and the earth is deep so the hearts of kings cannot be investigated.
SO...Remove the wicked from the kings presence and his throne will be established in righteousness.
Gossip...Without wood, fire goes out; without a gossip conflict dies down As charcoal for embers and wood for fire, so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife. A gossips words are like choice food that goes down to one's innermost being.
Tomorrow...Don't boast about tomorrow, for you don't know what a day might bring.
God is in control of all our tomorrows. Trust in him, lean on Him and walk in His statues for there is no other way for a prosperous life Luke 6:38 KJV Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
