A softH7390 answerH4617 turnsH7725 away wrath:H2534 but grievousH6089 wordsH1697 stirH5927 up anger.H639
The tongueH3956 of the wiseH2450 uses knowledgeH1847 aright:H3190 but the mouthH6310 of foolsH3684 poursH5042 out foolishness.H200
The eyesH5869 of the LORDH3068 are in everyH3605 place,H4725 beholdingH6822 the evilH7451 and the good.H2896
A wholesomeH4832 tongueH3956 is a treeH6086 of life:H2416 but perversenessH5558 therein is a breachH7667 in the spirit.H7307
A foolH191 despisesH5006 his father'sH1 instruction:H4148 but he that regardsH8104 reproofH8433 is prudent.H6191
In the houseH1004 of the righteousH6662 is muchH7227 treasure:H2633 but in the revenuesH8393 of the wickedH7563 is trouble.H5916
The lipsH8193 of the wiseH2450 disperseH2219 knowledge:H1847 but the heartH3820 of the foolishH3684 does not so.H3651
The sacrificeH2077 of the wickedH7563 is an abominationH8441 to the LORD:H3068 but the prayerH8605 of the uprightH3477 is his delight.H7522
The wayH1870 of the wickedH7563 is an abominationH8441 to the LORD:H3068 but he lovesH157 him that followsH7291 after righteousness.H6666
CorrectionH4148 is grievousH7451 to him that forsakesH5800 the way:H734 and he that hatesH8130 reproofH8433 shall die.H4191
HellH7585 and destructionH11 are beforeH5048 the LORD:H3068 howH637 muchH637 more then the heartsH3826 of the childrenH1121 of men?H120
A scornerH3887 lovesH157 not one that reprovesH3198 him: neitherH3808 will he goH3212 to the wise.H2450
A merryH8056 heartH3820 makes a cheerfulH3190 countenance:H6440 but by sorrowH6094 of the heartH3820 the spiritH7307 is broken.H5218
The heartH3820 of him that has understandingH995 seeksH1245 knowledge:H1847 but the mouthH6310 of foolsH3684 feedsH7462 on foolishness.H200
AllH3605 the daysH3117 of the afflictedH6041 are evil:H7451 but he that is of a merryH2896 heartH3820 has a continualH8548 feast.H4960
BetterH2896 is littleH4592 with the fearH3374 of the LORDH3068 than greatH7227 treasureH214 and troubleH4103 therewith.
BetterH2896 is a dinnerH737 of herbsH3419 whereH8033 loveH160 is, than a stalledH75 oxH7794 and hatredH8135 therewith.
A wrathfulH2534 manH376 stirsH1624 up strife:H4066 but he that is slowH750 to angerH639 appeasesH8252 strife.H7379
The wayH1870 of the slothfulH6102 man is as an hedgeH4881 of thorns:H2312 but the wayH734 of the righteousH3477 is made plain.H5549
A wiseH2450 sonH1121 makes a gladH8056 father:H1 but a foolishH3684 manH120 despisesH959 his mother.H517
FollyH200 is joyH8057 to him that is destituteH2638 of wisdom:H3820 but a manH376 of understandingH8394 walksH1980 uprightly.H3474
WithoutH369 counselH5475 purposesH4284 are disappointed:H6565 but in the multitudeH7230 of counsellorsH3289 they are established.H6965
A manH376 has joyH8057 by the answerH4617 of his mouth:H6310 and a wordH1697 spoken in due season,H6256 howH4100 goodH2896 is it!
The wayH734 of lifeH2416 is aboveH4605 to the wise,H7919 that he may departH5493 from hellH7585 beneath.H4295
The LORDH3068 will destroyH5255 the houseH1004 of the proud:H1343 but he will establishH5324 the borderH1366 of the widow.H490
The thoughtsH4284 of the wickedH7451 are an abominationH8441 to the LORD:H3068 but the words of the pureH2889 are pleasantH5278 words.
He that is greedyH1214 of gainH1214 troublesH5916 his own house;H1004 but he that hatesH8130 giftsH4979 shall live.H2421
The heartH3820 of the righteousH6662 studiesH1897 to answer:H6030 but the mouthH6310 of the wickedH7563 poursH5042 out evilH7451 things.
The LORDH3068 is farH7350 from the wicked:H7563 but he hearsH8085 the prayerH8605 of the righteous.H6662
The lightH3974 of the eyesH5869 rejoicesH8055 the heart:H3820 and a goodH2896 reportH8052 makes the bonesH6106 fat.H1878
The earH241 that hearsH8085 the reproofH8433 of lifeH2416 staysH3885 amongH7130 the wise.H2450
He that refusesH6544 instructionH4148 despisesH3988 his own soul:H5315 but he that hearsH8085 reproofH8433 getsH7069 understanding.H3820
The fearH3374 of the LORDH3068 is the instructionH4148 of wisdom;H2451 and beforeH6440 honorH3519 is humility.H6038
