Proverbs 13:3-5 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
    but one who talks too much comes to ruin.

The lazy person wants but doesn’t have;
    the diligent get their desires filled.

A righteous person hates lying,
    but the wicked is vile and disgraceful.

Proverbs 13:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,
    but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

A sluggard’s appetite is never filled,
    but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

The righteous hate what is false,
    but the wicked make themselves a stench
    and bring shame on themselves.
