In the LORD’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.
A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart.
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart— the unplowed field of the wicked—produce sin.
The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.
The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right.
The way of the guilty is devious, but the conduct of the innocent is upright.
Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
The wicked crave evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them.
