Proverbs 15

15:1 A soft answere turneth away wrath: but grieuous words stirre vp anger. 15:2 The tongue of the wise, vseth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fooles, powreth out foolishnes. 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in euery place, beholding the euill & the good. 15:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but peruersnesse therein is a breach in the spirit. 15:5 A foole despiseth his fathers instruction: but hee that regardeth reproofe, is prudent. 15:6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the reuenues of the wicked is trouble. 15:7 The lippes of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish, doeth not so. 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the vpright is his delight. 15:9 The way of the wicked is an abomination vnto the Lord: but he loueth him that followeth after righteousnes. 15:10 Correction is grieuous vnto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproofe, shall die. 15:11 Hell and destruction are before the Lord: how much more then, the hearts of the children of men 15:12 A scorner loueth not one that reproueth him: neither will he goe vnto the wise. 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerefull countenance: but by sorrow of the heart, the spirit is broken. 15:14 The heart of him that hath vnderstanding, seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fooles feedeth on foolishnesse. 15:15 All the dayes of the afflicted are euill: but he that is of a merry heart, hath a continuall feast. 15:16 Better is little with the feare of the Lord, then great treasure, and trouble therewith. 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbes where loue is, then a stalled oxe, and hatred therewith. 15:18 A wrathfull man stirreth vp strife: but he that is slow to anger, appeaseth strife. 15:19 The way of the slouthfull man is as an hedge of thornes: but the way of the righteous is made plaine. 15:20 A wise sonne maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother. 15:21 Folly is ioy to him that is destitute of wisedome: but a man of vnderstanding walketh vprightly. 15:22 Without counsell, purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellours they are established. 15:23 A man hath ioy by the answere of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it 15:24 The way of life is aboue to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath. 15:25 The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. 15:26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the wordes of the pure, are pleasant words. 15:27 Hee that is greedy of gaine, troubleth his owne house: but he that hateth gifts, shall liue. 15:28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answere: but the mouth of the wicked, powreth out euil things. 15:29 The Lord is farre from the wicked: but hee heareth the prayer of the righteous. 15:30 The light of the eyes reioyceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat. 15:31 The eare that heareth the reproofe of life, abideth among the wise. 15:32 He that refuseth instruction, despiseth his owne soule: but he that heareth reproofe, getteth vnderstanding. 15:33 The feare of the Lord is the instruction of wisedome; and before honour is humilitie.
