Manual labor (Prov 12:12-12:14)

“The wicked covet the proceeds of wickedness.

But the root of the righteous bears fruit.

The evil are ensnared by the transgressions of their lips.

But the righteous escape from trouble.

From the fruit of the mouth

One is filled with good things.

Manual labor has its reward.”

Whatever the wicked covet, they will receive this wickedness. However, the righteous bear fruit because of their good roots. The evil ones get caught in their own verbal transgressions. The righteous escape from trouble, while the wicked seem to be caught up in it. You will be judged by the fruit of your mouth, what comes out.   Good things come out of the righteous mouth as opposed to the wicked mouth. Manual labor has its own reward.
