A fool will no longer be called noble,
    and a scoundrel will not be said to be eminent.
For a fool speaks folly,
    and his mind[a] does iniquity:
to behave wickedly,[b]
    and to speak error concerning Yahweh,
to leave the throat of the hungry empty,
    and he deprives the thirsty of drink.
And a scoundrel, his weapons are evil;
    he plans evil devices
to ruin the poor with words of deception
    even[c] when the speech of the needy is right.
