Proverbs 15:9-19 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
9 The LORD detests the way of the wicked1 but he loves those who pursue righteousness.2 10 Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.3 11 Death and Destructiona lie open before the LORD4-- how much more the hearts of men!5 12 A mocker resents correction;6 he will not consult the wise. 13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,7 but heartache crushes the spirit.8 14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,9 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.10 16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.11 17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.12 18 A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension,13 but a patient man calms a quarrel.14 19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,15 but the path of the upright is a highway.
