BRAGADAJAH 1588 Proverbs 15: 1-11 Righteosness and Wickedness Contrasted. A soft answer turneth away wrath; but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright; but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life. but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. A fool despiseth his father’s instruction; but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. In the house of the righteous is much treasure; but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. The lips of the wise disperse knowledge; but the heart of the foolish doth not so. The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord; but the prayer of the upright is His delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord; but He loveth him that followeth after righteousness. Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way; and he that hateth reproof shall die. Hell and destruction are before the Lord; how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
