Proverbs 15:14-16 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

14 A heart that understands what is right looks for knowledge.
    But the mouths of foolish people feed on what is foolish.

15 All the days of those who are crushed are filled with pain and suffering.
    But a cheerful heart enjoys a good time that never ends.

16 It is better to have respect for the Lord and have little
    than to be rich and have trouble.

Proverbs 15:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 The discerning heart seeks knowledge,
    but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.

15 All the days of the oppressed are wretched,
    but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

16 Better a little with the fear of the Lord
    than great wealth with turmoil.
