Proverbs 21:1-10 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; he directs it wherever he wants. 2 Everyone's path is straight in their own eyes, but the LORD weighs the heart. 3 Acting with righteousness and justice is more valued by the LORD than sacrifice. 4 Prideful eyes, an arrogant heart, and the lamp of the wicked are all sinful. 5 The plans of the diligent end up in profit, but those who hurry end up with loss. 6 Those who gain treasure with lies are like a drifting fog, leading to death. 7 The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, for they refuse to act with justice. 8 The ways of some people are twisted and strange, but the behavior of those who do right is pure. 9 Better to live on the edge of a roof than with a contentious woman in a large house. 10 Wicked people desire evil; their neighbors receive no mercy from them.
