Proverbs Chapter 21

- -, -; -- . 1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever He will.
--, ; . 2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the hearts.
, -- . 3 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
-, --- . 4 A haughty look, and a proud heart--the tillage of the wicked is sin.
, -; -, -. 5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but every one that is hasty hasteth only to want.
, -- , -. 6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vapour driven to and fro; they [that seek them] seek death.
- : , . 7 The violence of the wicked shall drag them away; because they refuse to do justly.
; , . 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 in a house in common with a contentious woman.
, -; - . 10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil; his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
-, -; , -. 11 When the scorner is punished, the thoughtless is made wise; and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
, ; . 12 The Righteous One considereth the house of the wicked; overthrowing the wicked to their ruin.
, --- - , . 13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be answered.
, -; , . 14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger, and a present in the bosom strong wrath.
, ; , . 15 To do justly is joy to the righteous, but ruin to the workers of iniquity.
--, : . 16 The man that strayeth out of the way of understanding shall rest in the congregation of the shades.
, ; -, . 17 He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man; he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
; . 18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; and the faithless cometh in the stead of the upright.
, --- () . 19 It is better to dwell in a desert land, than with a contentious and fretful woman.
, -- ; . 20 There is desirable treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man swalloweth it up.
, -- , . 21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, prosperity, and honour.
, ; , . 22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and bringeth down the stronghold wherein it trusteth.
, -- . 23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
, -- , . 24 A proud and haughty man, scorner is his name, even he that dealeth in overbearing pride.
: - . 25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.
-, ; , . 26 There is that coveteth greedily all the day long; but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
, ; , - . 27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination; how much more, when he bringeth it with the proceeds of wickedness?
- ; , . 28 A false witness shall perish; but the man that obeyeth shall speak unchallenged.
; , ( ). 29 A wicked man hardeneth his face; but as for the upright, he looketh well to his way.
, -- , . 30 There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. {P}
--, ; , . 31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle; but victory is of the LORD.
