3 He that keepeth (guards, protects) his mouth (fig. for what’s spoken thereby) keepeth (guards) his life (soul): but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of the sluggard (sluggish, lazy) desireth (covets, waits longingly), and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent (incisive: having the ability to separate what’s superficial; constant in effort or exertion to accomplish) shall be made fat.
5 A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome (to be morally offensive, to stink), and cometh to shame (or confusion).
6 Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth (subverts or perverts) the sinner (the sin offering).
