19 Better a poor person walking in integrity
    than one who is perverse in his speech[a] and is a fool.
Also, a life[b] without knowledge is not good,
    and he who moves quickly with his feet misses the mark.[c]
As for the folly of humankind, its way leads to ruin,
    and against Yahweh his heart[d] will rage.
