Proverbs 21:1-10 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
1 The king's heart in the hands of the Lord is like the water streams, and by him it is turned in any direction at his pleasure. 2 Every way of a man seems right to himself, but the Lord is the tester of hearts. 3 To do what is right and true is more pleasing to the Lord than an offering. 4 A high look and a heart of pride, *** of the evil-doer is sin. 5 The purposes of the man of industry have their outcome only in wealth; but one who is over-quick in acting will only come to be in need. 6 He who gets stores of wealth by a false tongue, is going after what is only breath, and searching for death. 7 By their violent acts the evil-doers will be pulled away, because they have no desire to do what is right. 8 Twisted is the way of him who is full of crime; but as for him whose heart is clean, his work is upright. 9 It is better to be living in an angle of the house-top, than with a bitter-tongued woman in a wide house. 10 The desire of the evil-doer is fixed on evil: he has no kind feeling for his neighbour.
