« Proverbs 14 | Proverbs 15 | Proverbs 16 »
15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath,but a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place,keeping watch on the evil and the good.
4 A gentle tongue is a tree of life,but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
5 A fool despises his father’s instruction,but whoever heeds reproof is prudent.
6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,but trouble befalls the income of the wicked.
7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge;not so the hearts of fools.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,but the prayer of the upright is acceptable to him.
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,but he loves him who pursues righteousness.
10 There is severe discipline for him who forsakes the way;whoever hates reproof will die.
11 Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the Lord;how much more the hearts of the children of man!
12 A scoffer does not like to be reproved;he will not go to the wise.
13 A glad heart makes a cheerful face,but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed.
14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
15 All the days of the afflicted are evil,but the cheerful of heart has a continual feast.
16 Better is a little with the fear of the Lordthan great treasure and trouble with it.
17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love isthan a fattened ox and hatred with it.
18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
19 The way of a sluggard is like a hedge of thorns,but the path of the upright is a level highway.
20 A wise son makes a glad father,but a foolish man despises his mother.
21 Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense,but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.
22 Without counsel plans fail,but with many advisers they succeed.
23 To make an apt answer is a joy to a man,and a word in season, how good it is!
24 The path of life leads upward for the prudent,that he may turn away from Sheol beneath.
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proudbut maintains the widow’s boundaries.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord,but gracious words are pure.
27 Whoever is greedy for unjust gain troubles his own household,but he who hates bribes will live.
28 The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer,but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,and good news refreshes the bones.
31 The ear that listens to life-giving reproofwill dwell among the wise.
32 Whoever ignores instruction despises himself,but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence.
33 The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,and humility comes before honor.
« Galatians 4 | Galatians 5 | Galatians 6 »
Christ Has Set Us Free 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
2 Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.
3 I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.
7 You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view, and the one who is troubling you will bear the penalty, whoever he is.
11 But if I, brothers, still preach circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been removed.
12 I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
Keep in Step with the Spirit16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,
21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
