Proverbs 20:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 A king's wrath is like the roar of a lion;1 he who angers him forfeits his life.2 3 It is to a man's honor to avoid strife, but every fool3 is quick to quarrel.4 4 A sluggard5 does not plow in season; so at harvest time he looks but finds nothing.6 5 The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters,7 but a man of understanding draws them out. 6 Many a man claims to have unfailing love, but a faithful man who can find?8 7 The righteous man leads a blameless life;9 blessed are his children after him.10 8 When a king sits on his throne to judge,11 he winnows out all evil with his eyes.12 9 Who can say, "I have kept my heart pure;13 I am clean and without sin"?14 10 Differing weights and differing measures-- the LORD detests them both.15 11 Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure16 and right. 12 Ears that hear and eyes that see-- the LORD has made them both.17
