Proverbs 15:1-4

King James Version (KJV)

15 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

Proverbs 10:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
