BRAGADAYJAH 1589 Proverbs 15: 12-23 Righteousness and Wickedness Contrasted. A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him; neither will he go on to the wise. A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance; but by sorrow of the heart, the spirit is broken. The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge; but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. All the days of the afflicted are evil; but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox, and hatred therewith. A wrathful man stirreth up strife; but he that is slow to anger, appeaseth strife. The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns, but the way of the righteous is made plain. A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish man despiseth his mother. Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom; but a man of understanding walketh uprightly. Without counsel purposes are disappointed; but in the multitude of counsellors they are established. A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth; and a word spoke in due season how good is it! The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
