The Proverbs - Chapter 12
The Proverbs Chapters
13 In the sin of the lips lies a disastrous trap, but the upright finds a way out of misfortune.
14 Abundance of good things is the fruit of the lips; labour brings its own return.
16 The fool shows anger straightaway, the discreet conceals dislike.
19 Sincere lips endure for ever, the lying tongue lasts only a moment.
22 Lying lips are abhorrent to Yahweh; dear to him those who make truth their way of life.
23 The discreet keeps knowledge hidden, the heart of fools proclaims their folly.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
