Proverbs 15:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.1 11 Death and Destructiona lie open before the LORD2-- how much more the hearts of men!3 12 A mocker resents correction;4 he will not consult the wise. 13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,5 but heartache crushes the spirit.6 14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,7 but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly. 15 All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.8 16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.9 17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.10 18 A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension,11 but a patient man calms a quarrel.12 19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,13 but the path of the upright is a highway. 20 A wise son brings joy to his father,14 but a foolish man despises his mother.
