Proverbs 21:1-10 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
1 A king's heart is a water channel in the Lord's hand: He directs it wherever He chooses. 2 All the ways of a man seem right to him, but the Lord evaluates the motives.a 3 Doing what is righteous and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.b 4 The lampc that guides the wicked- haughty eyes and an arrogant heartd-is sin. 5 The plans of the diligent certainly lead to profit, but anyone who is reckless only becomes poor.e 6 Making a fortune through a lying tongue is a vanishing mist,f a pursuit of death.g h 7 The violence of the wicked sweeps them away because they refuse to act justly. 8 A guilty man's conduct is crooked, but the behavior of the innocent is upright.i 9 Better to live on the corner of a roof than to share a house with a nagging wife.j 10 A wicked person desires evil; he has no considerationk for his neighbor.
