Proverbs 21:1-10 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 In the LORD's hand the king's heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.1 2 People may think all their ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart.2 3 To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.3 4 Haughty eyes4 and a proud heart-- the unplowed field of the wicked--produce sin. 5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit5 as surely as haste leads to poverty. 6 A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.a6 7 The violence of the wicked will drag them away,7 for they refuse to do what is right. 8 The way of the guilty is devious,8 but the conduct of the innocent is upright. 9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.9 10 The wicked crave evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them.
