Proverbs 21

[[1]] ¶ The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. [2] Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. [3] To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. [4] An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. [5] The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want. [6] The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. [7] The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. [8] The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. [9] It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. [10] The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes. [11] When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. [12] The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. [13] Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. [14] A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath. [15] It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. [16] The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. [17] He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. [18] The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright. [19] It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. [20] There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up. [21] He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. [22] A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof. [23] Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. [24] Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath. [25] The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour. [26] He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not. [27] The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind? [28] A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly. [29] A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way. [30] There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. [31] The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
