Proverbs 15:24-15:33

Heaven Above Hell Below

  1. The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
  2. The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.
  3. The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
  4. He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.
  5. The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
  6. The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
  7. The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.
  8. The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
  9. He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
  10. The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
