18 As workers who tend a fig tree are allowed to eat the fruit, so workers who protect their employer’s interests will be rewarded.
18Just as damaging as a madman shooting a deadly weapon
18Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow.
18 For the LORD will be displeased with you and will turn His anger away from them.
18You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed.
18For it is good to keep these sayings in your heart and always ready on your lips.
18 The wicked are punished in place of the godly, and traitors in place of the honest.
18Plans succeed through good counsel; don’t go to war without wise advice.
18Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise you will ruin their lives.
