A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,On gossip:
but only in expressing his opinion (18:2).
The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;On sloth:
they go down into the inner parts of the body (18:8).
He who is slack in his workOn devotion to the Lord:
is a brother to him who destroys (18:9).
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe (18:10).
