  2. 2. Proverbs 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. (NIV) A fool's talk brings a rod to his back, but the lips of the wise protect them. The talk of a fool (ʾĕwl one who is , arrogant, hardened and thickheaded in his ways) results in his being punished with a rod on his back. Wise words, however, protect a person from such punishment.

  6. 6. 5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. What we are (our character) determines what we do; it’s not the other way around. One tells lies because he is a liar; it is his nature. But God wants to change our nature. He wants to produce in us His Own Character. 6
  7. 7. 6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. He’s looking in all the wrong places, and will not recognize wisdom when he sees it. This is the wrong crowd in which to seek wisdom. 7
  8. 8. 7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge. Anyone who speaks contrary to Scripture is foolish; he does not have lips of knowledge. Go from his presence. 8
  9. 9. 8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit. We should think about whatever we are about to do; Think about where a decision might lead us. Potential trouble Most of our wounds are truly self-inflicted. 9
  10. 10. 9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favor. Only a very foolish person thinks that sin is something to be laughed at. Foolish and profane men consider sin a mere trifle, to be made light of rather than mourned over. Fools mock at the sin-offering; but those that make light of sin, make light of Christ. Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. 10
