Proverbs 15:14-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 Lovers of God[a] hunger after truth,
but those without understanding
feast on foolishness and don’t even realize it.
15 Everything seems to go wrong
when you feel weak and depressed.
But when you choose to be cheerful,
every day will bring you more and more joy and fullness.[b]
16 It’s much better to live simply,
surrounded in holy awe and worship of God,
than to have great wealth with a home full of trouble.

  2. Proverbs 15:15 The Septuagint reads quite differently: “And the good (heart) is always calm.”
