Proverbs 21:1-10 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The king's heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he turns it wherever he pleases. 2 People may think they are doing what is right, but the LORD examines the heart. 3 The LORD is more pleased when we do what is just and right than when we give him sacrifices. 4 Haughty eyes, a proud heart, and evil actions are all sin. 5 Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. 6 Wealth created by lying is a vanishing mist and a deadly trap. a 7 Because the wicked refuse to do what is just, their violence boomerangs and destroys them. 8 The guilty walk a crooked path; the innocent travel a straight road. 9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a contentious wife in a lovely home. 10 Evil people love to harm others; their neighbors get no mercy from them.
