Now viewing scripture range from the book of Proverbs chapter 18:15
through chapter 18:24...
15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
16 A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
17 [He that is] first in his own cause [seemeth] just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
19 A brother offended [is harder to be won] than a strong city: and [their] contentions [are] like the bars of a castle.
20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; [and] with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
21 Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
22 [Whoso] findeth a wife findeth a good [thing], and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
23 The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
24 A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother.
