Proverbs 15:19-29 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,1 but the path of the upright is a highway. 20 A wise son brings joy to his father,2 but a foolish man despises his mother. 21 Folly delights a man who lacks judgment,3 but a man of understanding keeps a straight course. 22 Plans fail for lack of counsel,4 but with many advisers5 they succeed.6 23 A man finds joy in giving an apt reply7-- and how good is a timely word!8 24 The path of life leads upward for the wise to keep him from going down to the grave.a 25 The LORD tears down the proud man's house9 but he keeps the widow's boundaries intact.10 26 The LORD detests the thoughts11 of the wicked,12 but those of the pure13 are pleasing to him. 27 A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.14 28 The heart of the righteous weighs its answers,15 but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.16 29 The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.17
