Proverbs 21:1-10 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will. 2 All deeds are right in the sight of the doer, but the Lord weighs the heart. 3 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. 4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart— the lamp of the wicked—are sin. 5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to want. 6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a snare a of death. 7 The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, because they refuse to do what is just. 8 The way of the guilty is crooked, but the conduct of the pure is right. 9 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a contentious wife. 10 The souls of the wicked desire evil; their neighbors find no mercy in their eyes.
