New King James Version
14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.
15 All the days of the afflicted are evil,
(A)But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
18 (D)A wrathful man stirs up strife,
But he who is slow to anger allays contention.
19 (E)The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns,
But the way of the upright is a highway.
20 (F)A wise son makes a father glad,
But a foolish man despises his mother.
22 (I)Without counsel, plans go awry,
But in the multitude of counselors they are established.
