Proverbs 13:2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

From the fruit of the mouth one enjoys good things,
    but from the throat of the treacherous comes violence.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 13:2 One’s mouth normally eats food from outside, but in the moral life, things are reversed: one eats from the fruit of one’s mouth, i.e., one experiences the consequences of one’s own actions. Since the mouth of the treacherous is filled with violence, one must assume that they will some day endure violence.
