Proverbs 14:3-5 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The proud speech of a fool brings a rod of discipline,[a]
but the lips of the wise protect them.

Where there are no oxen, the feeding trough is empty,[b]
but an abundant harvest comes through the strength of an ox.

An honest witness does not deceive,
but a dishonest witness utters lies.
