Proverbs 15:22-32 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
22 Plans fail for lack of counsel,1 but with many advisers2 they succeed.3 23 A man finds joy in giving an apt reply4-- and how good is a timely word!5 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 house6 but he keeps the widow's boundaries intact.7 26 The LORD detests the thoughts8 of the wicked,9 but those of the pure10 are pleasing to him. 27 A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.11 28 The heart of the righteous weighs its answers,12 but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.13 29 The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.14 30 A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.15 31 He who listens to a life-giving rebuke will be at home among the wise.16 32 He who ignores discipline despises himself,17 but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.18
