Proverbs 17:6-8 King James Version

6  Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

7  Excellent [1] speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

8  A gift is as a precious [2] stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.


[1] 17:7 Excellent...: Heb. A lip of excellency

[2] 17:8 a precious...: Heb. a stone of grace
