Proverbs 15

15:6 In the house of the righteous [is] much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is a trouble.

(a) For though they have much yet it is full of trouble and care.
15:8 The b sacrifice of the wicked [is] an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright [is] his delight.
(b) That thing is abominable before God, which the wicked think to be most excellent, and by which they think most to be accepted.
15:10 Correction [is] grievous to him that c forsaketh the way: [and] he that hateth reproof shall die.
(c) He who swears from the word of God, cannot stand to be admonished.
15:11 d Hell and destruction [are] before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
(d) There is nothing so deep or secret that can be hid from the eyes of God, much less manís thoughts.
15:19 The way of the slothful [man is] as an hedge of e thorns: but the way of the righteous [is] made plain.
(e) That is, he always finds some hinderance or stay, and dares not go forward.
15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but f in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

(f) Read (Proverbs 11:14).
15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word [spoken] g in due season, how good [it is]!
(g) If we will that our talk be comfortable, we must wait for time and season.
15:26 The thoughts of the wicked [are] an abomination to the LORD: but [the words] of the pure [are] h pleasant words.
(h) That is, wholesome and profitable to the hearers.
15:31 The ear that heareth the i reproof of life abideth among the wise.
(i) That suffers himself to be admonished by Godís word, which brings life: and so amends.
15:33 The fear of the LORD [is] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is] k humility.
(k) Meaning, that God exalts no one but them that are truly humbled.
