Proverbs 15:1-4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Contrast the Upright and the Wicked

15 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
But a [a]harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise makes knowledge [b]acceptable,
But the mouth of fools spouts folly.
The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
Watching the evil and the good.
A [c]soothing tongue is a tree of life,
But perversion in it [d]crushes the spirit.
