Proverbs Chapter 21   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 The king's heart [is] in the hand of the LORD, [as] the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   2 Every way of a man [is] right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. [jfb]   3 To do justice and judgment [is] more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. [jfb]   4 An high look, and a proud heart, [and] the plowing of the wicked, [is] sin. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   5 The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; but of every one [that is] hasty only to want. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue [is] a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. [jfb] [jwc]   7 The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. [gsn] [jfb]   8 The way of man [is] froward and strange: but [as for] the pure, his work [is] right. [jfb] [jwc]   9 [It is] better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. [jfb]   10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes. [jfb] [jwc]   11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   12 The righteous [man] wisely considereth the house of the wicked: [but God] overthroweth the wicked for [their] wickedness. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. [jfb]   14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   15 [It is] joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction [shall be] to the workers of iniquity. [jfb]   16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. [jfb] [jwc]   17 He that loveth pleasure [shall be] a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. [jfb] [jwc]   18 The wicked [shall be] a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   19 [It is] better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. [jfb]   20 [There is] treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. [jfb]   22 A wise [man] scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. [jfb]   24 Proud [and] haughty scorner [is] his name, who dealeth in proud wrath. [jfb]   25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not. [jfb] [jwc]   27 The sacrifice of the wicked [is] abomination: how much more, [when] he bringeth it with a wicked mind? [jfb] [jwc]   28 A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   29 A wicked man hardeneth his face: but [as for] the upright, he directeth his way. [jfb] [jwc]   30 [There is] no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. [jfb]   31 The horse [is] prepared against the day of battle: but safety [is] of the LORD. [jwc]
