Proverbs 10:8 (NKJV) — 8 The wise in heart will receive commands, But a prating fool will fall.
A mark of wisdom. Wise persons will not resist learning yet another lesson. They love reproof. They are teachable. Those with loose lips will trip on them and fall. One of the marks of fools is their prating, which means chatter, idle talk, constant and foolish speech.
