The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.12
All a man's ways seem right to him, but the LORD weighs the heart.23
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.34
Haughty eyes4 and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin!
The plans of the diligent lead to profit5 as surely as haste leads to poverty.
A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.a67
The violence of the wicked will drag them away,7 for they refuse to do what is right.
