Proverbs 15 (asv)
But a grievous word stirreth up anger.
15:2The tongue of the wise uttereth knowledge aright;
But the mouth of fools poureth out folly.
But perverseness therein is a breaking of the spirit.
15:5A fool despiseth his father's correction;
But he that regardeth reproof getteth prudence.
15:6In the house of the righteous is much treasure;
But in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
But the heart of the foolish doeth not so.
But the prayer of the upright is his delight.
But he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
15:10There is grievous correction for him that forsaketh the way;
And he that hateth reproof shall die.
How much more then the hearts of the children of men!
15:12A scoffer loveth not to be reproved;
He will not go unto the wise.
15:13A glad heart maketh a cheerful countenance;
But the mouth of fools feedeth on folly.
15:15All the days of the afflicted are evil;
Than great treasure and trouble therewith.
15:17Better is a dinner of herbs, where love is,
Than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
15:18A wrathful man stirreth up contention;
But he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
15:19The way of the sluggard is as a hedge of thorns;
But the path of the upright is made a highway.
15:20A wise son maketh a glad father;
But a foolish man despiseth his mother.
15:22Where there is no counsel, purposes are disappointed;
But in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
That he may depart from Sheol beneath.
But he will establish the border of the widow.
But pleasant words are pure.
15:27He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house;
But he that hateth bribes shall live.
15:28The heart of the righteous studieth to answer;
15:29Jehovah is far from the wicked;
But he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
And good tidings make the bones fat.
15:31The ear that hearkeneth to the reproof of life
Shall abide among the wise.
15:32He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul;
But he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding.
And before honor goeth humility.
