8Set not thine heart upon goods unjustly gotten, for they shall not profit thee in the day of calamity. 9Winnow not with every wind, and go not into every way: for so doth the sinner that hath a double tongue. 10Be stedfast in thy understanding; and let thy word be the same. 11Be swift to hear; and let thy life be sincere; and with patience give answer.12If thou hast understanding, answer thy neighbour; if not, lay thy hand upon thy mouth. 13Honour and shame is in talk: and the tongue of man is his fall. 14Be not called a whisperer, and lie not in wait with thy tongue: for a foul shame is upon the thief, and an evil condemnation upon the double tongue.
