Proverbs 21
New Living Translation
21The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he guides it wherever he pleases.H4428H3820H3027H3068H6388H4325H5186H2654 2People may be right in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their heart.H1870H376H3477H5869H3068H8505H3826 3The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.H6213H6666H4941H977H3068H2077 4Haughty eyes, a proud heart, and evil actions are all sin.H7312H5869H7342H3820H5215H7563H2403 5Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.H4284H2742H4195H213H4270 6Wealth created by a lying tongue is a vanishing mist and a deadly trap.H6467H214H8267H3956H1892H5086H1245H4194 7The violence of the wicked sweeps them away, because they refuse to do what is just.H7701H7563H1641H3985H6213H4941 8The guilty walk a crooked path; the innocent travel a straight road.H1870H376H2019H2054H2134H6467H3477 9It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.H2896H3427H6438H1406H4079H4066H802H2267H1004 10Evil people desire evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them.H5315H7563H183H7451H7453H2603H5869 11If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded become wise; if you instruct the wise, they will be all the wiser.H3887H6064H6612H2449H2450H7919H3947H1847 12The Righteous One knows what is going on in the homes of the wicked; he will bring disaster on them.H6662H7919H1004H7563H5557H7563H7451 13Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.H331H241H2201H1800H7121H6030 14A secret gift calms anger; a bribe under the table pacifies fury.H4976H5643H3711H639H7810H2436H5794H2534 15Justice is a joy to the godly, but it terrifies evildoers.H8057H6662H6213H4941H4288H6466H205 16The person who strays from common sense will end up in the company of the dead.H120H8582H1870H7919H5117H6951H7496 17Those who love pleasure become poor; those who love wine and luxury will never be rich.H157H8057H4270H376H157H3196H8081H6238 18The wicked are punished in place of the godly, and traitors in place of the honest.H7563H3724H6662H898H3477 19It’s better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife.H2896H3427H776H4057H4079H4066H3708H802 20The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get.H214H2530H8081H5116H2450H3684H120H1104 21Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.H7291H6666H2617H4672H2416H6666H3519 22The wise conquer the city of the strong and level the fortress in which they trust.H2450H5927H5892H1368H3381H5797H4009 23Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.H8104H6310H3956H8104H5315H6869 24Mockers are proud and haughty; they act with boundless arrogance.H2086H3093H3887H8034H6213H2087H5678 25Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work.H8378H6102H4191H3027H3985H6213 26Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!H183H8378H3117H6662H5414H2820 27The sacrifice of an evil person is detestable, especially when it is offered with wrong motives.H2077H7563H8441H935H2154 28A false witness will be cut off, but a credible witness will be allowed to speak.H3577H5707H6H376H8085H1696H5331 29The wicked bluff their way through, but the virtuous think before they act.H7563H376H5810H6440H3477H995H3559H1870 30No human wisdom or understanding or plan can stand against the Lord.H2451H8394H6098H3068 31The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.H5483H3559H3117H4421H8668H3068
