Proverbs 15:12-22 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
12 Mockers don't love those who rebuke them, so they stay away from the wise. 13 A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit. 14 A wise person is hungry for truth, while the fool feeds on trash. 15 For the poor, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast. 16 It is better to have little with fear for the LORD than to have great treasure with turmoil. 17 A bowl of soup with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate. 18 A hothead starts fights; a cool-tempered person tries to stop them. 19 A lazy person has trouble all through life; the path of the upright is easy! 20 Sensible children bring joy to their father; foolish children despise their mother. 21 Foolishness brings joy to those who have no sense; a sensible person stays on the right path. 22 Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many counselors bring success.
