12 Whoever derides their neighbor has no sense, but the one who has understanding holds their tongue.
12 He that is void void...: Heb. destitute of heart of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
12 Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent.
12 Mean-spirited slander is heartless; quiet discretion accompanies good sense.
12 He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, But a man of understanding holds his peace.
12 It is foolish to belittle one's neighbor; a sensible person keeps quiet.
(Read Proverbs 11:12)
A man of understanding does not judge of others by their success.
