Proverbs 21:1-10 CJB

1 The king's heart in ADONAI's hand is like streams of water -he directs it wherever he pleases.
2 All a person's ways are right in his own view, but ADONAI weighs the heart.
3 To do what is right and just is more pleasing to ADONAI than sacrifice.
4 Haughty looks, a proud heart -what the wicked plow is sin.
5 The plans of the diligent lead only to abundance; but all who rush in arrive only at want.
6 A fortune gained by a lying tongue is vapor dispersed [by] seekers of death.
7 The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, because they refuse to act justly.
8 A criminal's conduct is crooked, but the work of the pure is right.
9 It is better to live on a corner of the roof than to share the house with a nagging wife.
10 The wicked is set on evil; he doesn't pity even his neighbor.
