Rivulets of waters [is] the heart of a king in the hand of Jehovah, Wherever He pleaseth He inclineth it.
Every way of a man [is] right in his own eyes, And Jehovah is pondering hearts.
To do righteousness and judgment, Is chosen of Jehovah rather than sacrifice.
Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the wicked [is] sin.
The purposes of the diligent [are] only to advantage, And of every hasty one, only to want.
The making of treasures by a lying tongue, [Is] a vanity driven away of those seeking death.
The spoil of the wicked catcheth them, Because they have refused to do judgment.
Froward [is] the way of a man who is vile, And the pure -- upright [is] his work.
Better to sit on a corner of the roof, Than [with] a woman of contentions and a house of company.
The soul of the wicked hath desired evil, Not gracious in his eyes is his neighbour.
