Proverbs 15

1  A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

2  The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

3  The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

5  A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

6  In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

7  The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

8  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

9  The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

10  Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.
