Violent man

And leads him in a way that is not good.
30 He winks his eye to devise perverse things;
He purses his lips and brings about evil.

Increase in Learning

Proverbs 16:21-24
New King James Version (NKJV)

21 The wise in heart will be called prudent,
And sweetness of the lips increases learning.

22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it.
But the correction of fools is folly.

23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth,
And adds learning to his lips.

24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
