 it [is] a breach in the spirit.

 of the heart the spirit is broken.
15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh
 knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
15:15 All the days of the afflicted [are] evil: but he that is
 of a merry heart [hath] a continual feast.
15:16 Better [is] little with the fear of the LORD, than great
 treasure and trouble with it.

 stalled ox and hatred with it.
15:18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but [he that is] slow
 to anger appeaseth strife.
15:19 The way of the slothful [man is] as a hedge of thorns: but
 the way of the righteous [is] made plain.

 despiseth his mother.

 man of understanding walketh uprightly.

 multitude of counselors they are established.
15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word
 [spoken] in due season, how good [it is]!

 from hell beneath.
15:25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will
 establish the border of the widow.

 LORD: but [the words] of the pure [are] pleasant words.

 that hateth gifts shall live.
