The first to state his case seems right, until his opponent begins to cross-examine him. A toss of a coin ends disputes, and settles the issue between strong opponents. A relative offended is harder to reach than a strong city, and disputes are like the barred gates of a fortified citadel. From the fruit of a person's mouth his stomach is satisfied, with the product of his lips is he satisfied. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love its use will eat its fruit. The one who finds a wife finds what is enjoyable, and receives a pleasurable gift from the LORD. A poor person makes supplications, but a rich man answers harshly.
