Proverbs 21:1-10 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The king's heart in the hand of Jehovah is [as] brooks of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. 2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but Jehovah weigheth the hearts. 3 To exercise justice and judgment is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice. 4 Lofty eyes, and a proud heart, the lamp a 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 fleeting breath of them that seek death. 7 The devastation of the wicked sweepeth them away, because they refuse to do what is right. 8 Very crooked is the way of a guilty man; but as for the pure, his work is upright. 9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman, and a house in common. 10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
