 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
 A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
