Proverbs 12:22-24 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
22 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
but those who act faithfully are his delight.
23 One who is clever conceals knowledge,
but the mind of a fool broadcasts folly.
24 The hand of the diligent will rule,
while the lazy will be put to forced labour.
