Proverbs 13:3-5 Darby Translation (DARBY)

He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his soul; destruction shall be to him that openeth wide his lips.

A sluggard's soul desireth and hath nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

A righteous [man] hateth lying; but the wicked maketh himself odious and cometh to shame.

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.
