020:015:001
A soft answer turneth away wrath:
but grievous words stir up anger.


020:015:002
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright:
but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.


020:015:003
The eyes of the LORD are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good.


020:015:004
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life:
but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.


020:015:005
A fool despiseth his father's instruction:
but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.


020:015:006
In the house of the righteous is much treasure:
but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.


020:015:007
The lips of the wise disperse knowledge:
but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.


020:015:008
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD:
but the prayer of the upright is his delight.


020:015:009
The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD:
but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.


020:015:010
Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way:
and he that hateth reproof shall die.


020:015:011
Hell and destruction are before the LORD:
how much more then the hearts of the children of men?


020:015:012
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him:
neither will he go unto the wise.


020:015:013
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance:
but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.


020:015:014
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge:
but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.


020:015:015
All the days of the afflicted are evil:
but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.


020:015:016
Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.


020:015:017
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.


020:015:018
A wrathful man stirreth up strife:
but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.


020:015:019
The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns:
but the way of the righteous is made plain.


020:015:020
A wise son maketh a glad father:
but a foolish man despiseth his mother.


020:015:021
Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom:
but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.


020:015:022
Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.


020:015:023
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth:
and a word spoken in due season,
how good is it!


020:015:024
The way of life is above to the wise,
that he may depart from hell beneath.


020:015:025
The LORD will destroy the house of the proud:
but he will establish the border of the widow.


020:015:026
The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD:
but the words of the pure are pleasant words.


020:015:027
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house;
but he that hateth gifts shall live.


020:015:028
The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:
but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.


020:015:029
The LORD is far from the wicked:
but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.


020:015:030
The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
and a good report maketh the bones fat.


020:015:031
The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.


020:015:032
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.


020:015:033
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom;
and before honour is humility.
