Proverbs 15:1-6 NLT

1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger.
2 The wise person makes learning a joy; fools spout only foolishness.
3 The LORD is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.
4 Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
5 Only a fool despises a parent's discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.
6 There is treasure in the house of the godly, but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.
