Proverbs 15:22-32 TMBA

22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed, but in the multitude of counselors they are established.
23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season -- how good it is!
24 The path of life is upward for the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud, but He will establish the border of the widow.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD, but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
27 He that is greedy for gain troubleth his own house, but he that hateth bribes shall live.
28 The heart of the righteous studieth how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
29 The LORD is far from the wicked, but He heareth the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light of the eyes maketh the heart rejoice, and a good report maketh the bones fat.
31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul, but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
