5A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet. 6In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. 7The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it. 8Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.9If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest. 10The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. 11A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
