In the LORD's hand the king's heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.12
People may think all their ways are right, 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 unplowed field of the wicked--produce 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.
The way of the guilty is devious,8 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.910
The wicked crave evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them.
