16 Every prudent [man] dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open [his] folly.
17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful embassador [is] health.
18 Poverty and shame [shall be to] him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but [it is] abomination to fools to depart from evil.
20 He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
