“The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:11 Tilleth - That employs his time in an honest calling. Vain persons - In an idle course of living.
12:12 Desireth - He approves those arts, which wicked men use like nets to ensnare other men. The root - That piety, which is the root of his actions, yields him sufficient fruit both for his own need, and to do good to others.
12:14 Mouth - By his pious and profitable discourses. Hands - Of his actions.
12:15 Hearkeneth - That distrusts his own judgments, and seeks counsel from others.
