Let reason go before every enterprise, and counsel before every action. The countenance is a sign of changing of the heart. Four manner of things appear: good and evil, life and death: but the tongue ruleth over them continually. There is one that is wise and teacheth many, and yet is unprofitable to himself. There is one that showeth wisdom in words, and is hated: he shall be destitute of all food. For grace is not given him from the Lord; because he is deprived of all wisdom. Another is wise to himself; and the fruits of understanding are commendable in his mouth. A wise man instructeth his people; and the fruits of his understanding fail not. A wise man shall be filled with blessing; and all they that see him shall count him happy. The days of the life of man may be numbered: but the days of Israel are innumerable. A wise man shall inherit glory among his people, and his name shall be perpetual.
