Proverbs Chapter 15

Proverbs 15:6
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.

Proverbs 15:8
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.

Proverbs 15:10
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.

Proverbs 15:11
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 man's thoughts.

Proverbs 15:19
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.

Proverbs 15:22
15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but {f} in the
      multitude of counsellors they are established.

      (f) Read Proverbs 11:14.

Proverbs 15:23
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.

Proverbs 15:26
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.

Proverbs 15:31
15:31 The ear that heareth the {i} reproof of life abideth among
      the wise.

      (i) That suffers himself to be admonished by God's word,
          which brings life: and so amends.

Proverbs 15:33
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.
