14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
14 The wise store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.
14 The wise lay up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
14 The wise accumulate knowledge - a true treasure; know-it-alls talk too much - a sheer waste. The Road to Life Is a Disciplined Life
14 Wise people store up knowledge, But the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
14 Wise people treasure knowledge, but the babbling of a fool invites disaster.

Commentary on Proverbs 10:14
(Read Proverbs 10:14)
Whatever knowledge may be useful, we must lay it up, that it may not be to seek when we want it. The wise gain this wisdom by reading, by hearing the word, by meditation, by prayer, by faith in Christ, who is made of God unto us wisdom.
