Proverbs 21:1-10 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Streams of water [are] the hearta of a king in the hand of Yahweh; {wherever}b he will desire, he will turn. 2 Every way of a man is upright in his [own] eyes, but Yahweh weighs hearts.c 3 Doing righteousness and justice is [more] acceptable to Yahweh than sacrifice. 4 Haughtiness of [the] eyes and pride of heart, [the] lamp of the wicked [are] sin. 5 The plans of the diligent only [lead] to abundance, but all who are hasty, only to want. 6 He who makes treasure by a lying tongue [is a] fleeting vapor [and] seekerd of death. 7 The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, for they refuse to do justice. 8 Crooked is the way of a man and a foreigner, but the pure [is] upright [in] his conduct. 9 Better to dwell on the corner of a roof than [to] share a house with a womane of contention. 10 The soulf of the wicked desires evil; his neighbor will not find mercy in his eyes.
