Now viewing scripture range from the book of Proverbs chapter 17:25
through chapter 17:28...
25 A foolish son [is] a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.
26 Also to punish the just [is] not good, [nor] to strike princes for equity.
27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: [and] a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: [and] he that shutteth his lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding.
