On Life and Conduct

1 The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He 1turns it wherever He wishes. 2 2Every man's way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD 3weighs the hearts. 3 To do 4righteousness and justice Is desired by the LORD more than sacrifice. 4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart, The 5lamp of the wicked, is sin. 5 The plans of the 6diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone 7who is hasty comes surely to poverty. 6 The 8acquisition of treasures by a lying tongue Is a fleeting vapor, the apursuit of 9death. 7 The violence of the wicked will drag them away, Because they 10refuse to act with justice. 8 The way of a guilty man is 11crooked, But as for the pure, his conduct is upright. 9 It is better to live in a corner of a roof Than bin a house shared with a contentious woman. 10 The soul of the wicked desires evil; His 12neighbor finds no favor in his eyes.
