Proverbs 15

 

 PROVERBS ON SOCIETY AND RELIGION

 

▪HOW TO PACIFY WRATH

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

 2 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.

 

 ▪OMNIPRESENCE OF GOD

3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.

 

▪ANOTHER “TREE OF LIFE”

 4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

 

▪TWO KINDS OF SONS

 5 A fool despises his father's instruction, But he who receives correction is prudent.

 

▪FOUR CONTRASTED CLASSES

6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure, But in the revenue of the wicked is trouble.

 7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge, But the heart of the fool does not do so.

 8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But the prayer of the upright is His delight.

 

▪FOUR CONTRASTED THINGS OF GOD AND MAN

 9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But He loves him who follows righteousness.

 10 Harsh discipline is for him who forsakes the way, And he who hates correction will die.

 

▪FOUR WELL KNOWN FACTS OF GOD AND MAN

 11 Hell and Destruction are before the LORD; So how much more the hearts of the sons of men.

 12 A scoffer does not love one who corrects him, Nor will he go to the wise.

 

▪GOOD AND EVIL HEARTS

 13 A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

 14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.

 15 All the days of the afflicted are evil, But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.

 

▪SOME BETTER THINGS

 16 Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, Than great treasure with trouble.

 17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, Than a fatted calf with hatred.

 

▪EIGHT CONTRASTED CLASSES

Proverbs 15:18

 18 A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.

 19 The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, But the way of the upright is a highway.

 20 A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother.

 21 Folly is joy to him who is destitute of discernment, But a man of understanding walks uprightly.

 

▪HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL

 22 Without counsel, plans go awry, But in the multitude of counselors they are established.

 

▪WHEN WORDS ARE SWEET

 23 A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!

 

▪THE WAY OF LIFE

 24 The way of life winds upward for the wise, That he may turn away from hell below.

 

▪TWO COMMON WORKS OF GOD

 25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud, But He will establish the boundary of the widow.

 

▪SIX CONTRASTED CLASSES

 26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD, But the words of the pure are pleasant.

 27 He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house, But he who hates bribes will live.

 28 The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil.

 

▪NINE WARNINGS AND ASSURANCES

 29 The LORD is far from the wicked, But He hears the prayer of the righteous.

 30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, And a good report makes the bones healthy.

 31 The ear that hears the rebukes of life Will abide among the wise.

 32 He who disdains instruction despises his own soul, But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding.

 33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

 (NKJV)
