Proverbs 12:15
Context
Loving Discipline and Knowledge

1Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge: but he that hates reproof is brutish. 2A good man obtains favor of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn. 3A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. 4A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. 5The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit. 6The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. 7The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. 8A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised. 9He that is despised, and has a servant, is better than he that honors himself, and lacks bread. 10A righteous man regards the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. 11He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that follows vain persons is void of understanding. 12The wicked desires the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yields fruit. 13The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble. 14A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered to him. 15The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that listens to counsel is wise. 16A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covers shame. 17He that speaks truth shows forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. 18There is that speaks like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. 19The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment. 20Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy. 21There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. 22Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight. 23A prudent man conceals knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaims foolishness. 24The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. 25Heaviness in the heart of man makes it stoop: but a good word makes it glad. 26The righteous is more excellent than his neighbor: but the way of the wicked seduces them. 27The slothful man roasts not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. 28In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
