Proverbs 15:1-9 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
1 A sensitive answer turns back wrath, but an offensive word stirs up anger. 2 The tongue of the wise enhances knowledge, but the mouth of a fool gushes with stupidity. 3 The LORD's eyes are everywhere, keeping watch on evil and good people. 4 Wholesome speech is a tree of life, but dishonest talk breaks the spirit. 5 A fool doesn't like a father's instruction, but those who heed correction are mature. 6 Great treasure is in the house of the righteous, but the gain of the wicked brings trouble. 7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge, but the hearts of fools have none. 8 The LORD detests the sacrifices of the wicked, but favors the prayers of those who do right. 9 The LORD detests the path of the wicked, but loves those who pursue righteousness.
