Proverbs 16:14-24

14 1A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and a wise man will 2appease it.
15 3In the light of a king's face there is life, and his 4favor is like 5the clouds that bring the spring rain.
16 6How much better to get wisdom than 7gold! To get understanding is to be chosen rather than 8silver.
17 The highway of the upright 9turns aside from evil; whoever guards his way preserves his life.
18 10Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 11It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to 12divide the spoil with the proud.
20 Whoever gives thought to the worda13will discover good, and blessed is he 14who trusts in the LORD.
21 The wise of heart is called discerning, and sweetness of speech 15increases persuasiveness.
22 Good sense is 16a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 17The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious and adds persuasiveness to his lips.
24 18Gracious words are like 19a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and 20health to the body.
