Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Proverbs Chapter 15 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 15
    King James Version

    A soft answer turneth away wrath:
    but grievous 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 therein is a breach in the spirit.​

    5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction:
    but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.​

    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 unto him that forsaketh the way:
    and he that hateth reproof shall die.​

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

    12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him:
    neither will he go unto the wise.​

    13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance:
    but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.​

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

    15 All the days of the afflicted are evil:
    but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.​

    16 Better is little with the fear of the Lord
    than great treasure and trouble therewith.​
    17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
    than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.​

    18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife:
    but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.​

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

    20 A wise son maketh a glad father:
    but a foolish man despiseth his mother.​

    21 Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom:
    but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.​

    22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
    but in the multitude of counsellors 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.​

    25 The Lord will destroy the house of the proud:
    but he will establish the border of the widow.​

    26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination 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.​

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

    30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
    and a good report maketh the bones fat.​

    31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life
    abideth among the wise.​
    32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
    but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.​
    33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom;
    and before honour is humility.

    The LORD Hears The Righteous

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
