Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 15

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A soft answer turneth away wrath; but a grievous word stirreth up anger.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 The eyes of HaShem are in every place, keeping watch upon the evil and the good.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a wound to the spirit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 A fool despiseth his father's correction; but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure; but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge; but the heart of the foolish is not stedfast.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to HaShem; but the prayer of the upright is His delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to HaShem; but He loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 There is grievous correction for him that forsaketh the way; and he that hateth reproof shall die.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The nether-world and Destruction are before HaShem; how much more then the hearts of the children of men!

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 A scorner loveth not to be reproved; he will not go unto the wise.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance; but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The heart of him that hath discernment seeketh knowledge; but the mouth of fools feedeth on folly.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 All the days of the poor are evil; but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Better is little with the fear of HaShem, than great treasure and turmoil therewith.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 A wrathful man stirreth up discord; but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 The way of the sluggard is as though hedged by thorns; but the path of the upright is even.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Folly is joy to him that lacketh understanding; but a man of discernment walketh straightforwards.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 For want of counsel purposes are frustrated; but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 A man hath joy in the answer of his mouth; and a word in due season, how good is it!

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 The path of life goeth upward for the wise, that he may depart from the nether-world beneath.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 HaShem will pluck up the house of the proud; but He will establish the border of the widow.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 The thoughts of wickedness are an abomination to HaShem; but words of pleasantness are pure.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 HaShem is far from the wicked; but He heareth the prayer of the righteous.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart; and a good report maketh the bones fat.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 The ear that hearkeneth to the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul; but he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 The fear of HaShem is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour goeth humility.
