Proverbs 13:3-5 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Whoever controls his mouth protects his own life.
    Whoever has a big mouth comes to ruin.
A lazy person craves food and there is none,
    but the appetite of hard-working people is satisfied.
A righteous person hates lying,
    but a wicked person behaves with shame and disgrace.

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.
