Proverbs 14:31 – 15:8


31 Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker,
   but those who are kind to the needy honour him.
32 The wicked are overthrown by their evildoing,
   but the righteous find a refuge in their integrity.*
33 Wisdom is at home in the mind of one who has understanding,
   but it is not* known in the heart of fools.
34 Righteousness exalts a nation,
   but sin is a reproach to any people.
35 A servant who deals wisely has the king’s favour,
   but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully.

15A soft answer turns away wrath,
   but a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise dispenses knowledge,*
   but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
   keeping watch on the evil and the good.
4 A gentle tongue is a tree of life,
   but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
5 A fool despises a parent’s instruction,
   but the one who heeds admonition is prudent.
6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,
   but trouble befalls the income of the wicked.
7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;
   not so the minds of fools.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
   but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
