15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

15:3 The eyes of the LORD [are] in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

15:4 A wholesome tongue [is] a tree of life: but perverseness therein [is] a breach in the spirit.

15:5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

15:6 In the house of the righteous [is] much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

15:7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish [doeth] not so.

15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked [is] an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright [is] his delight.

15:9 The way of the wicked [is] an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

15:10 Correction [is] grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: [and] he that hateth reproof shall die.

15:11 Hell and destruction [are] before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?

15:12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.

15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

15:15 All the days of the afflicted [are] evil: but he that is of a merry heart [hath] a continual feast.

15:16 Better [is] little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.

15:17 Better [is] a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

15:18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but [he that is] slow to anger appeaseth strife.

15:19 The way of the slothful [man is] as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous [is] made plain.

15:20 A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

15:21 Folly [is] joy to [him that is] destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.

15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word [spoken] in due season, how good [is it]!

15:24 The way of life [is] above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

15:25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.

15:26 The thoughts of the wicked [are] an abomination to the LORD: but [the words] of the pure [are] pleasant words.

15:27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

15:28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

15:29 The LORD [is] far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

15:30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: [and] a good report maketh the bones fat.

15:31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

15:32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.

15:33 The fear of the LORD [is] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is] humility.
