Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 A mild answer breaketh wrath: but a harsh word stirreth up fury. 1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise adorneth knowledge: but the mouth of fools bubbleth out folly. 2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
3 The eyes of the Lord in every place behold the good and the evil. 3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
4 A peaceable tongue is a tree of life: but that which is immoderate, shall crush the spirit. 4 The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
5 A fool laugheth at the instruction of his father: but he that regardeth reproofs shall become prudent. In abundant justice there is the greatest strength: but the devices of the wicked shall be rooted out. 5 A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
6 The house of the just is very much strength: and in the fruits of the wicked is trouble. 6 The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings them trouble.
