Proverbs 15:1-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 A gentle answer1 turns away wrath,2 but a harsh word stirs up anger. 2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,3 but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.4 3 The eyes5 of the LORD are everywhere,6 keeping watch on the wicked and the good.7 4 The tongue8 that brings healing is a tree of life,9 but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.10 5 A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.11 6 The house of the righteous contains great treasure,12 but the income of the wicked brings them trouble.13 7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;14 not so the hearts of fools. 8 The LORD detests the sacrifice15 of the wicked,16 but the prayer of the upright pleases him.17 9 The LORD detests the way of the wicked18 but he loves those who pursue righteousness.19
