6Wealth created by a lying tongue is a vanishing mist and a deadly trap.
6Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?
6Many seek favors from a ruler; everyone is the friend of a person who gives gifts!
6Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.
6Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.
6Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin. By fearing the LORD, people avoid evil.
6There is treasure in the house of the godly, but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.
6A mocker seeks wisdom and never finds it, but knowledge comes easily to those with understanding.
6Â Godliness guards the path of the blameless, but the evil are misled by sin.
