Proverbs 21:2-12

KJV 2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. NIV 2 A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart. KJV 3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. NIV 3 To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. KJV 4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. NIV 4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart— the unplowed field of the wicked—produce sin. KJV 5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want. NIV 5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. KJV 6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. NIV 6 A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare. KJV 7 The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. NIV 7 The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right. KJV 8 The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. NIV 8 The way of the guilty is devious, but the conduct of the innocent is upright. KJV 9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. NIV 9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. KJV 10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes. NIV 10 The wicked crave evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them. KJV 11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. NIV 11 When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom; by paying attention to the wise they get knowledge. KJV 12 The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. NIV 12 The Righteous One takes note of the house of the wicked and brings the wicked to ruin.
