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