Proverbs 15:7-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;1 not so the hearts of fools. 8 The LORD detests the sacrifice2 of the wicked,3 but the prayer of the upright pleases him.4 9 The LORD detests the way of the wicked5 but he loves those who pursue righteousness.6 10 Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.7 11 Death and Destructiona lie open before the LORD 8-- how much more the hearts of men!9 12 A mocker resents correction;10 he will not consult the wise. 13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,11 but heartache crushes the spirit.12 14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,13 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.14 16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.15 17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.16
