Proverbs 15 (KJV)

1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous (terrible) words stir up anger.

2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness (hardheadedness) therein is a breach (break) in the spirit.

6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

10 Correction is grievous (appalling) unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof (correction) shall die.

11 Hell and destruction are before the Lord: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?

12 A scorner (hypocrite)  loveth not one that reproveth (corrects) him: neither will he go unto the wise.

14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

16 Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith.

18 A wrathful (raging) man stirreth up strife (war): but he that is slow to anger appeaseth (quenches) strife (war).

19 The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain.

21 Folly (stupidity) is joy to him that is destitute (lacking) of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.

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 is it!

24 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination (curse) to the Lord: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

What's not easy to do, train yourself to do....practice is a requirement, not a choice for those who live for God. ~ Karmen

29 The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof (correction) getteth understanding.

33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
