Proverbs 15:1; Proverbs 15:23; Proverbs 16:1; Proverbs 16:4; Proverbs 29:19 (New American Standard)
A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
A man has joy in an apt answer, And how delightful is a timely word!
The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD .
The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.
A slave will not be instructed by words alone; For though he understands, there will be no response.
