Proverbs 15:1-7 (Show Context)

15:1 A gentle response turns away anger,

but a harsh word stirs up wrath.

2 The tongue of the wise treats knowledge correctly,

but the mouth of the fool spouts out folly.

3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place,

keeping watch on those who are evil and those who are good.

4 Speech that heals is like a life-giving tree,

but a perverse tongue breaks the spirit.

5 A fool rejects his father's discipline,

but whoever heeds reproof shows good sense.

6 In the house of the righteous is abundant wealth,

but the income of the wicked brings trouble.

7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge,

but not so the heart of fools.
