Proverbs 15:1-11

1 1A soft answer turns away wrath, but 2a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but 3the mouths of fools pour out folly.
3 4The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.
4 5A gentlea tongue is 6a tree of life, but 7perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
5 8A fool 9despises his father's instruction, but 10whoever heeds reproof is prudent.
6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure, but trouble befalls the income of the wicked.
7 11The lips of the wise spread knowledge; 12not so the hearts of fools.b
8 13The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but 14the prayer of the upright is acceptable to him.
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but he loves him 15who pursues righteousness.
10 There is 16severe discipline for him who forsakes the way; 17whoever hates reproof will die.
11 Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD; how much more 18the hearts of the children of man!
