Proverbs 12:22-24 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
22 An abomination of Yahweh are lips of deceit,
but they who act faithfully are his delight.
23 A clever person conceals knowledge,
but the heart of a fool announces folly.
24 The hand of the diligent ones will rule,
but the lazy will belong to forced labor.
Proverbs 12:22-24 New International Version (NIV)

but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

but a fool’s heart blurts out folly.

but laziness ends in forced labor.
