Proverbs 15
New Living Translation
15A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.H7390H4617H7725H2534H6089H1697H5927H639 2The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.H3956H2450H1847H3190H6310H3684H5042H200 3The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.H5869H3068H4725H6822H7451H2896 4Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.H4832H3956H6086H2416H5558H7667H7307 5Only a fool despises a parent’s discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.H191H5006H1H4148H8104H8433H6191 6There is treasure in the house of the godly, but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.H1004H6662H7227H2633H8393H7563H5916 7The lips of the wise give good advice; the heart of a fool has none to give.H8193H2450H2219H1847H3820H3684 8The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but he delights in the prayers of the upright.H2077H7563H8441H3068H8605H3477H7522 9The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue godliness.H1870H7563H8441H3068H157H7291H6666 10Whoever abandons the right path will be severely disciplined; whoever hates correction will die.H4148H7451H5800H734H8130H8433H4191 11Even Death and Destruction hold no secrets from the Lord. How much more does he know the human heart!H7585H11H3068H3826H1121H120 12Mockers hate to be corrected, so they stay away from the wise.H3887H157H3198H3212H2450 13A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.H8056H3820H3190H6440H6094H3820H7307H5218 14A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash.H3820H995H1245H1847H6310H6440H3684H7462H200 15For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.H3117H6041H7451H2896H3820H8548H4960 16Better to have little, with fear for the Lord, than to have great treasure and inner turmoil.H2896H4592H3374H3068H7227H214H4103 17A bowl of vegetables with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate.H2896H737H3419H160H75H7794H8135 18A hot-tempered person starts fights; a cool-tempered person stops them.H2534H376H1624H4066H750H639H8252H7379 19A lazy person’s way is blocked with briers, but the path of the upright is an open highway.H1870H6102H4881H2312H734H3477H5549 20Sensible children bring joy to their father; foolish children despise their mother.H2450H1121H8055H1H3684H120H959H517 21Foolishness brings joy to those with no sense; a sensible person stays on the right path.H200H8057H2638H3820H376H8394H3212H3474 22Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.H5475H4284H6565H7230H3289H6965 23Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!H376H8057H4617H6310H1697H6256H2896 24The path of life leads upward for the wise; they leave the grave behind.H734H2416H4605H7919H5493H7585H4295 25The Lord tears down the house of the proud, but he protects the property of widows.H3068H5255H1004H1343H5324H1366H490 26The Lord detests evil plans, but he delights in pure words.H4284H7451H8441H3068H2889H5278H561 27Greed brings grief to the whole family, but those who hate bribes will live.H1214H1215H5916H1004H8130H4979H2421 28The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words.H3820H6662H1897H6030H6310H7563H5042H7451 29The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous.H3068H7350H7563H8085H8605H6662 30A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.H3974H5869H8055H3820H2896H8052H1878H6106H1878 31If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise.H241H8085H8433H2416H3885H7130H2450 32If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.H6544H4148H3988H5315H8085H8433H7069H3820 33Fear of the Lord teaches wisdom; humility precedes honor.H3374H3068H4148H2451H6440H3519H6038
