Proverbs chapter 15

A soft answer putteth down displeasure, but froward words provoke unto anger.
A wise tongue commendeth knowledge, a foolish mouth babbleth out nothing but foolishness.
The eyes of the LORD look on every place, both upon the good and bad.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but he that abuseth it, hath a broken mind.
A fool despiseth his father's correction, but he that taketh heed when he is reproved, shall have the more understanding.
In the house of the righteous are great riches, but in the increase of the ungodly there is misordre.
A wise mouth poureth out knowledge, but the heart of the foolish doth not so.
The LORD abhorreth the sacrifice of the ungodly, but the prayer of the righteous is acceptable to him.
The way of the ungodly is an abomination unto the LORD, but who so followeth righteousness, him he loveth.
He that forsaketh the right street, shall be sore punished: and who so hateth correction, falleth into death.
The hell with her pain is known to the LORD, how much more then the hearts of men?
A scornful body loveth not one that rebuketh him, neither will he come among the wise.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance, but an unquiet mind maketh it heavy.
A wise heart will seek after knowledge, but the mouth of fools meddle with foolishness.
All the days of the poor are miserable, but a quiet heart is as a continual feast.
Better is a little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure, for they are not without sorrow. Better is a mess of potage with love, than a fat ox with evil will.
An angry man stirreth up strife, but he that is patient stilleth discord.
The way of the slothful is full of thorns, but the street of the righteous is well cleansed.
A wise son maketh a glad father, but an undiscreet body shameth his mother.
A fool rejoiceth in foolish things, but a wise man looketh well to his own goings.
Unadvised thoughts shall come to naught, but where as are men that can give counsel, there is steadfastness.
O how joyful a thing is it, a man to give a convenient answer? O how pleasant is a word spoken in due season.
The way of life leadeth unto heaven, that a man should beware of hell beneath.
The LORD will break down the house of the proud, but he shall make fast the borders of the widow.
The LORD abhorreth the imaginations of the wicked, but pure words are pleasant to him.
The covetous man rooteth up his own house, but who so hateth rewards, shall live.
A righteous man museth in his mind how to do good, but the mind of the ungodly imagineth, how he may do harm.
The LORD is far from the ungodly, but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
Like as the clearness of the eyes rejoiceth the heart, so doth a good name feed the bones.
The ear that harkeneth unto wholesome warning, and enclineth thereto, shall dwell among the wise.
He that refuseth to be reformed, despiseth his own soul: but he that submitteth himself to correction, is wise.
The fear of the LORD is the right science of wisdom, and lowliness goeth before honour.
