Proverbs 21

21:1 Rivulets of waters [is] the heart of a king in the hand of Jehovah, Wherever He pleaseth He inclineth it.  21:2 Every way of a man [is] right in his own eyes, And Jehovah is pondering hearts.  21:3 To do righteousness and judgment, Is chosen of Jehovah rather than sacrifice.  21:4 Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the wicked [is] sin.  21:5 The purposes of the diligent [are] only to advantage, And of every hasty one, only to want.  21:6 The making of treasures by a lying tongue, [Is] a vanity driven away of those seeking death.  21:7 The spoil of the wicked catcheth them, Because they have refused to do judgment.  21:8 Froward [is] the way of a man who is vile, And the pure--upright [is] his work.  21:9 Better to sit on a corner of the roof, Than [with] a woman of contentions and a house of company.  21:10 The soul of the wicked hath desired evil, Not gracious in his eyes is his neighbour.  21:11 When the scorner is punished, the simple becometh wise, And in giving understanding to the wise He receiveth knowledge.  21:12 The Righteous One is acting wisely Towards the house of the wicked, He is overthrowing the wicked for wickedness.  21:13 Whoso is shutting his ear from the cry of the poor, He also doth cry, and is not answered.  21:14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger, And a bribe in the bosom strong fury.  21:15 To do justice [is] joy to the righteous, But ruin to workers of iniquity.  21:16 A man who is wandering from the way of understanding, In an assembly of Rephaim resteth.  21:17 Whoso [is] loving mirth [is] a poor man, Whoso is loving wine and oil maketh no wealth.  21:18 The wicked [is] an atonement for the righteous, And for the upright the treacherous dealer.  21:19 Better to dwell in a wilderness land, Than [with] a woman of contentions and anger.  21:20 A treasure to be desired, and oil, [Is] in the habitation of the wise, And a foolish man swalloweth it up.  21:21 Whoso is pursuing righteousness and kindness, Findeth life, righteousness, and honour.  21:22 A city of the mighty hath the wise gone up, And bringeth down the strength of its confidence.  21:23 Whoso is keeping his mouth and his tongue, Is keeping from adversities his soul.  21:24 Proud, haughty, scorner [is] his name, Who is working in the wrath of pride.  21:25 The desire of the slothful slayeth him, For his hands have refused to work. 21:26 All the day desiring he hath desired, And the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.  21:27 The sacrifice of the wicked [is] abomination, Much more when in wickedness he bringeth it.  21:28 A false witness doth perish, And an attentive man for ever speaketh.  21:29 A wicked man hath hardened by his face, And the upright--he prepareth his way.  21:30 There is no wisdom, nor understanding, Nor counsel, over-against Jehovah. 21:31 A horse is prepared for a day of battle, And the deliverance [is] of Jehovah!
