Proverbs 21:1-10 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 As the divisions of waters, so the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord: whithersoever he will, he shall turn it. 2 Every way of a man seemeth right to himself: but the Lord weigheth the hearts. 3 To do mercy and judgment, pleaseth the Lord more than victims. 4 Haughtiness of the eyes is the enlarging of the heart: the lamp of the wicked is sin. 5 The thoughts of the industrious always bring forth abundance: but every sluggard is always in want. 6 He that gathereth treasures by a lying tongue, is vain and foolish, and shall stumble upon the snares of death. 7 The robberies of the wicked shall be their downfall, because they would not do judgment. 8 The perverse way of a man is strange: but as for him that is pure, his work is right. 9 It is better to sit in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman, and in a common house. 10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil, he will not have pity on his neighbour.
