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 high look, and a proud heart, [and] the plowing of the wicked, [is] sin.
The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; but of every one [that is] hasty only to want.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue [is] a vanity tossed to and fro by them that seek death.
The robbery 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 house-top, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.
