Proverbs 21:1-10 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The Lord controls the mind of a king as easily as he directs the course of a stream. 2 You may think that everything you do is right, but remember that the Lord judges your motives. 3 Do what is right and fair; that pleases the Lord more than bringing him sacrifices. 4 Wicked people are controlled by their conceit and arrogance, and this is sinful. 5 Plan carefully and you will have plenty; if you act too quickly, you will never have enough. 6 The riches you get by dishonesty soon disappear, but not before they lead you into the jaws of death. 7 The wicked are doomed by their own violence; they refuse to do what is right. 8 Guilty people walk a crooked path; the innocent do what is right. 9 Better to live on the roof than share the house with a nagging wife. 1 10 Wicked people are always hungry for evil; they have no mercy on anyone.
