箴言 15

10 背離正道,必遭嚴懲;
11 陰間和冥府[a]在耶和華面前尚且無法隱藏,
12 嘲諷者不愛聽責備,
13 心中喜樂,容光煥發;
14 哲士渴慕知識,
15 困苦人天天受煎熬,
16 財物雖少但敬畏耶和華,
17 粗茶淡飯但彼此相愛,
18 脾氣暴躁,惹起爭端;
19 懶惰人的路佈滿荊棘,
20 智慧之子使父親歡喜,
21 無知者以愚昧為樂,
22 獨斷專行,計劃失敗;
23 應對得體,心中愉快;
24 智者循生命之路上升,
25 耶和華拆毀傲慢人的房屋,
26 耶和華憎恨惡人的意念,
27 貪愛財富,自害己家;
28 義人三思而後答,
29 耶和華遠離惡人,
30 笑顏令人心喜,
31 傾聽生命的訓誡,
32 不受管教就是輕看自己,
33 敬畏耶和華使人得智慧,

Proverbs 15

1A gentle answer turns away wrath,
    but a harsh word stirs up anger.

The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge,
    but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.

The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
    keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

The soothing tongue is a tree of life,
    but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.

A fool spurns a parent’s discipline,
    but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.

The house of the righteous contains great treasure,
    but the income of the wicked brings ruin.

The lips of the wise spread knowledge,
    but the hearts of fools are not upright.

The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked,
    but the prayer of the upright pleases him.

The Lord detests the way of the wicked,
    but he loves those who pursue righteousness.

10 Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path;
    the one who hates correction will die.

11 Death and Destruction[a] lie open before the Lord –
    how much more do human hearts!

12 Mockers resent correction,
    so they avoid the wise.

13 A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
    but heartache crushes the spirit.

14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,
    but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.

15 All the days of the oppressed are wretched,
    but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

16 Better a little with the fear of the Lord
    than great wealth with turmoil.

17 Better a dish of vegetables with love
    than a fattened calf with hatred.

18 A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict,
    but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.

19 The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,
    but the path of the upright is a highway.

20 A wise son brings joy to his father,
    but a foolish man despises his mother.

21 Folly brings joy to one who has no sense,
    but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course.

22 Plans fail for lack of counsel,
    but with many advisors they succeed.

23 A person finds joy in giving an apt reply –
    and how good is a timely word!

24 The path of life leads upward for the prudent
    to keep them from going down to the realm of the dead.

25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud,
    but he sets the widow’s boundary stones in place.

26 The Lord detests the thoughts of the wicked,
    but gracious words are pure in his sight.

27 The greedy bring ruin to their households,
    but the one who hates bribes will live.

28 The heart of the righteous weighs its answers,
    but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.

29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
    but he hears the prayer of the righteous.

30 Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart,
    and good news gives health to the bones.

31 Whoever heeds life-giving correction
    will be at home among the wise.

32 Those who disregard discipline despise themselves,
    but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.

33 Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord,
    and humility comes before honour.
