Proverbs 21:1-10 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 The Lord can control a king's mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases. 2 You may believe you are doing right, but the Lord judges your reasons. 3 Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. 4 Proud looks, proud thoughts, and evil actions are sin. 5 The plans of hard-working people earn a profit, but those who act too quickly become poor. 6 Wealth that comes from telling lies vanishes like a mist and leads to death. 7 The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do what is right. 8 Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right. 9 It is better to live in a corner on the roofn than inside the house with a quarreling wife. 10 Evil people only want to harm others. Their neighbors get no mercy from them.
