Proverbs 17:2-4 American Standard Version (ASV)

A servant that dealeth wisely shall have rule over a son that [a]causeth shame,
And shall have part in the inheritance among the brethren.
The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold;
But Jehovah trieth the hearts.
An evil-doer giveth heed to wicked lips;
And [b]a liar giveth ear to a mischievous tongue.
