Proverbs 17:2-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
2 A wise servant shall be lord of fond sons; and he shall part heritage among brethren. (A wise servant shall be lord over his master’s foolish sons and daughters; and in time he shall have part of the inheritance, along with the brothers and the sisters.)
3 As silver is proved by fire, and gold is proved by a chimney, so the Lord proveth hearts.
4 An evil man obeyeth to a wicked tongue; and a false man obeyeth to false lips. (An evil person obeyeth a wicked tongue; and a liar obeyeth lies.)
