The wise in heart will be called understanding, And sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness. (Proverbs 16:21)

Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it, But the discipline of fools is folly. (Proverbs 16:22)

The heart of the wise instructs his mouth And adds persuasiveness to his lips. (Proverbs 16:23)

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24)
