Proverbs 14:34-Proverbs 15:19 - Wise Ways To Live

34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people.

35 The king's favor is toward a servant who acts wisely, But his anger is toward him who acts shamefully.

1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.

2 The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, But the mouth of fools spouts folly.

3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Watching the evil and the good.

4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life, But perversion in it crushes the spirit.

5 A fool rejects his father's discipline, But he who regards reproof is sensible.

6 Great wealth is in the house of the righteous, But trouble is in the income of the wicked.

7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge, But the hearts of fools are 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 to the LORD, But He loves one who pursues righteousness.

10 Grievous punishment is for him who forsakes the way; He who hates reproof will die.

11 Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD, How much more the hearts of men!

12 A scoffer does not love one who reproves him, He will not go to the wise.

13 A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.

14 The mind of the intelligent seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on folly.

15 All the days of the afflicted are bad, But a cheerful heart has a continual feast.

16 Better is a little with the fear of the LORD Than great treasure and turmoil with it.

17 Better is a dish of vegetables where love is Than a fattened ox served with hatred.

18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute.

19 The way of the lazy is as a hedge of thorns, But the path of the upright is a highway.
