Proverbs 10

Proverbs 10:1 "The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of his mother."
Proverbs 10:2 "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death."
Proverbs 10:3 "The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked."
Proverbs 10:4 "He becometh poor that dealeth [with] a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich."
Proverbs 10:5 "He that gathereth in summer [is] a wise son: [but] he that sleepeth in harvest [is] a son that causeth shame."
There is not a more unhappy parent in the world than one who knows his or her child is caught up in sin and things of this world. There is no happier parent than one who knows that his or her offspring are all saved with their names written in the Lamb's book of life. The only thing that brings life eternal with Jesus our Lord is to be in right standing with Him. "Righteousness" is just that, being in right standing with our Lord.  
Proverbs 10:14 "Wise [men] lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction."
The foolish always seem to want to talk about something they know nothing about.
Proverbs 10:17 "He [is in] the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth."
Instruction is something we should be eager to receive. It keeps us on the right path and keeps us from making mistakes. Only a fool refuses correction. You have completely stopped growing when you will not accept correction.
Proverbs 10-22
 Proverbs 10:18 "He that hideth hatred [with] lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, [is] a fool."
 A fool is someone who has undeniable proof before them and still will not believe. They are not able to determine truth but will prefer to believe a lie.
Proverbs 10:19 "In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips [is] wise."
Proverbs 10:20 "The tongue of the just [is as] choice silver: the heart of the wicked [is] little worth."
The person who listens learns.   A person, (Christian) who is just and upright, uses his tongue to tell others about the salvation of Jesus.  
Proverbs 10:30 "The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth."
Proverbs 10:31-32 "The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out."  "The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] frowardness."
You see this is describing an evil mouth. This mouth is an opening where the issues of the heart come forth.
