Proverbs 15:1-7 CJB

1 A gentle response deflects fury, but a harsh word makes tempers rise.
2 The tongue of the wise presents knowledge well, but the mouth of a fool spews out folly.
3 The eyes of ADONAI are everywhere, watching the evil and the good.
4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life, but when it twists things, it breaks the spirit.
5 A fool despises his father's discipline, but he who heeds warnings is prudent.
6 The home of the righteous is a storehouse of treasure, but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.
7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools.
