Proverbs 21

1  The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

2  Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.

3  To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

4  An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

5  The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.

6  The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

7  The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.

8  The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.

9  It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

10  The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
