Proverbs 15:13-23 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,1 but heartache crushes the spirit.2 14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,3 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.4 16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.5 17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.6 18 A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension,7 but a patient man calms a quarrel.8 19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,9 but the path of the upright is a highway. 20 A wise son brings joy to his father,10 but a foolish man despises his mother. 21 Folly delights a man who lacks judgment,11 but a man of understanding keeps a straight course. 22 Plans fail for lack of counsel,12 but with many advisers13 they succeed.14 23 A man finds joy in giving an apt reply15-- and how good is a timely word!16
