The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; as the rivers of water, He turneth it whithersoever He will.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
A haughty look and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, are sin.
The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness, but of everyone that is hasty, only to want.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity which is tossed to and fro by them that seek death.
The robberies of the wicked shall destroy them, because they refuse to do judgment.
The way of man is froward and strange, but as for the pure, his work is right.
It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop than with a brawling woman in a large house.
The soul of the wicked desireth evil; his neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.
