Proverbs 16:13-23 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
13 The king is pleased with righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly. 14 The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise do what they can to appease it. 15 When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a gentle rain. 16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, and understanding than silver! 17 The path of the upright leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe. 18 Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. 19 It is better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud. 20 Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be happy. 21 The wise are known for their understanding, and instruction is appreciated if it's well presented. 22 Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. 23 From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive.
