PROV 15:1 A soft answer turneth back fury, And a grievous word raiseth up anger. PROV 15:2 The tongue of the wise maketh knowledge good, And the mouth of fools uttereth folly. PROV 15:3 In every place are the eyes of Jehovah, Watching the evil and the good. PROV 15:4 A healed tongue `isa tree of life, And perverseness in it -- a breach in the spirit. PROV 15:5 A fool despiseth the instruction of his father, And whoso is regarding reproof is prudent. PROV 15:6 `Inthe house of the righteous `isabundant strength, And in the increase of the wicked -- trouble. PROV 15:7 The lips of the wise scatter knowledge, And the heart of fools `isnot right. PROV 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked `isan abomination to Jehovah, And the prayer of the upright `isHis delight. PROV 15:9 An abomination to Jehovah `isthe way of the wicked, And whoso is pursuing righteousness He loveth. PROV 15:10 Chastisement `isgrievous to him who is forsaking the path, Whoso is hating reproof dieth. PROV 15:11 Sheol and destruction `arebefore Jehovah, Surely also the hearts of the sons of men. PROV 15:12 A scorner loveth not his reprover, Unto the wise he goeth not. PROV 15:13 A joyful heart maketh glad the face, And by grief of heart is the spirit smitten. PROV 15:14 The heart of the intelligent seeketh knowledge, And the mouth of fools enjoyeth folly. PROV 15:15 All the days of the afflicted `areevil, And gladness of heart `isa perpetual banquet. PROV 15:16 Better `isa little with the fear of Jehovah, Than much treasure, and tumult with it. PROV 15:17 Better `isan allowance of green herbs and love there, Than a fatted ox, and hatred with it. PROV 15:18 A man of fury stirreth up contention, And the slow to anger appeaseth strife. PROV 15:19 The way of the slothful `isas a hedge of briers, And the path of the upright is raised up. PROV 15:20 A wise son rejoiceth a father. And a foolish man is despising his mother. PROV 15:21 Folly is joy to one lacking heart, And a man of intelligence directeth `hisgoing. PROV 15:22 Without counsel `isthe making void of purposes, And in a multitude of counsellors it is established. PROV 15:23 Joy `isto a man in the answer of his mouth, And a word in its season -- how good! PROV 15:24 A path of life `ison high for the wise, To turn aside from Sheol beneath. PROV 15:25 The house of the proud Jehovah pulleth down, And He setteth up the border of the widow. PROV 15:26 An abomination to Jehovah `arethoughts of wickedness, And pure `aresayings of pleasantness. PROV 15:27 A dishonest gainer is troubling his house, And whoso is hating gifts liveth. PROV 15:28 The heart of the righteous meditateth to answer, And the mouth of the wicked uttereth evil things. PROV 15:29 Far `isJehovah from the wicked, And the prayer of the righteous He heareth. PROV 15:30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart, A good report maketh fat the bone. PROV 15:31 An ear that is hearing the reproof of life Doth lodge among the wise. PROV 15:32 Whoso is refusing instruction is despising his soul, And whoso is hearing reproof Is getting understanding. PROV 15:33 The fear of Jehovah `isthe instruction of wisdom, And before honour `ishumility!
