Proverbs 14:3-5 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

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.

  2. Proverbs 14:4 Or clean
