B (28) but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
C (29) Yahweh is far from the wicked:
but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
D (30) The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
and a good report maketh the bones fat.
E (31,32) The ear that heareth the reproof of life
abideth among the wise.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding<03820>.

and before honour is humility.
E’ (1) The preparations of the heart <03820> in man,
and the answer of the tongue, is from Yahweh.
D’ (2,3) All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
but the Yahweh weigheth the spirits.
Commit thy works unto Yahweh,
and thy thoughts shall be established.
C’ (4) Yahweh hath made all things for himself:
yea, even the wicked
B’ (4) for the day of evil.
A’ (5) Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to Yahweh: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
