Proverbs 21:1-10 NIRV

1 The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord. He directs it like a stream of water anywhere he pleases.
2 Everything a man does might seem right to him. But the LORD knows what he is thinking.
3 Do what is right and fair. The LORD accepts that more than sacrifices.
4 Proud eyes and a proud heart are the lamp of sinful people. But those things are evil.
5 The plans of people who work hard succeed. You can be sure that those in a hurry will become poor.
6 A fortune made by people who tell lies amounts to nothing and leads to death.
7 The harmful things that evil people do will drag them away. They refuse to do what is right.
8 The path of those who are guilty is crooked. But the conduct of those who are not guilty is honest.
9 It is better to live on a corner of a roof than to share a house with a nagging wife.
10 A sinful person longs to do evil. He doesn't show his neighbor any mercy.
