Proverbs 21:4-14 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
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. 11 When a scoffer is punished, the simple become wiser; when the wise are instructed, they increase in knowledge. 12 The Righteous One observes the house of the wicked; he casts the wicked down to ruin. 13 If you close your ear to the cry of the poor, you will cry out and not be heard. 14 A gift in secret averts anger; and a concealed bribe in the bosom, strong wrath.
