Proverbs 19

Verse 7 needs an ole-veyored. I am surprised at its absence. The revia deals with the musical pause, but I don't observe them in my own punctuation.

Are the slothful sluggard or the stupid dullard both examples of the weak (verse 17)?  There are gems in these fields. Dig them out, but don't eat the worms. Pay attention to the bits that come between obvious recurrences. Repetition is not redundancy but framing.

I was only going to do a few of these, but once in, stopping is impossible.

Proverbs 19 Fn Min Max Syll

מֵעִקֵּ֥שׁ שְׂ֝פָתָ֗יו וְה֣וּא כְסִֽיל

than one devious of lips and it is stupid.
