Proverbs 21:1-10 GW

1 The king's heart is like streams of water. Both are under the LORD's control. He turns them in any direction he chooses.
2 A person thinks everything he does is right, but the LORD weighs hearts.
3 Doing what is right and fair is more acceptable to the LORD than offering a sacrifice.
4 A conceited look and an arrogant attitude, which are the lamps of wicked people, are sins.
5 The plans of a hard-working person lead to prosperity, but everyone who is [always] in a hurry ends up in poverty.
6 Those who gather wealth by lying are wasting time. They are looking for death.
7 The violence of wicked people will drag them away since they refuse to do what is just.
8 The way of a guilty person is crooked, but the behavior of those who are pure is moral.
9 Better to live on a corner of a roof than to share a home with a quarreling woman.
10 The mind of a wicked person desires evil and has no consideration for his neighbor.
