Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A soft answer turneth back fury, And a grievous word raiseth up anger. 1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise maketh knowledge good, And the mouth of fools uttereth folly. 2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
3 In every place are the eyes of Jehovah, Watching the evil and the good. 3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
4 A healed tongue [is] a tree of life, And perverseness in it -- a breach in the spirit. 4 The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
5 A fool despiseth the instruction of his father, And whoso is regarding reproof is prudent. 5 A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
6 [In] the house of the righteous [is] abundant strength, And in the increase of the wicked -- trouble. 6 The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings them trouble.
