Whoso is despising his neighbour lacketh heart, And a man of understanding keepeth silence.
Proverbs 11:12 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that is void of wisdom - A foolish man is generally abundant in his censures; he dwells on the defects of his neighbor, and is sure to bring them into the most prominent view. But a man of understanding - a prudent, sensible man, hides those defects wherever he can, and puts the most charitable construction on those which he cannot conceal.
