Pr 12:18–19

12:18, 19 These two proverbs may have been placed with v. 17 because they enlarge on the same theme. Verse 18 considers the effects of words on our relationships with others, while v. 19 considers the strength of truth compared with the weakness of lies that inevitably give themselves away (cf. v. 13).
