The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
King James Bible
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
American Standard Version
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
Young's Literal Translation
A fountain of life is the mouth of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence.
Proverbs 10:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life - מקור חיים mekor chaiyim, is the vein of lives; an allusion to the great aorta, which conveys the blood from the heart to every art of the body. The latter clause of this verse is the same with that of Proverbs 10:6.
