Mishle 12:22-24 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

22 Sfatayim (lips) of sheker are to’evah to Hashem, but they that deal emunah (faithfully, truthfully) are His delight.

23 A prudent man concealeth da’as, but the lev kesilim (mind of fools) preaches folly.

24 The yad of the kharutzim (diligent ones) shall rule, but the remiyyah (deceitfully lazy man) shall be put to forced labor.

Proverbs 12:22-24 New International Version (NIV)

22 The Lord detests lying lips,
    but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

23 The prudent keep their knowledge to themselves,
    but a fool’s heart blurts out folly.

24 Diligent hands will rule,
    but laziness ends in forced labor.
