12 A base person, a man of iniquity, is he that walketh with a froward mouth;
12 A foolish man and a transgressor goes in ways that are not good.
12 A fool, a wicked man, is unscrupulous.
13 That winketh with his eyes, that scrapeth with his feet, that pointeth with his fingers;
13 And the same winks with the eye, and makes a sign with his foot, and teaches with the beckonings of his fingers.
13 he winks with the eyes, touches with the foot, speaks with the finger.
14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth evil continually; he soweth discord.
14 His perverse heart devises evils: at all times such a one causes troubles to a city.
14 With a depraved heart he devises evil, and at all times he sows conflict.
15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; on a sudden shall he be broken, and that without remedy.
15 Therefore his destruction shall come suddenly; overthrow and irretrievable ruin.
15 To this one, his perdition will arrive promptly, and he shall be crushed suddenly: he will no longer have any remedy.
