Proverbs 15:12-22 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
12 A mocker doesn't love one who corrects him;a he will not consult the wise. 13 A joyful heart makes a face cheerful, but a sad heart [produces] a broken spirit.b 14 A discerning mind seeks knowledge, but the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.c 15 All the days of the oppressed are miserable, but a cheerful heart has a continual feast. 16 Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure with turmoil. 17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.d 18 A hot-tempered man stirs up conflict, but a man slow to anger calms strife.e 19 A slacker's way is like a thorny hedge, but the path of the upright is a highway.f 20 A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish one despises his mother.g 21 Foolishness brings joy to one without sense, but a man with understanding walks a straight path.h 22 Plans fail when there is no counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.i
