Proverbs 16:20-24

A.20 He that handleth a matter (dabar – word)  wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.

B.21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.

C.22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.

B’.23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

A’.24 Pleasant words (emer – speech) are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
