Proverbs 21

The king's
<04428>
heart
<03820>
[is] in the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
[as] the rivers
<06388>
of water
<04325>_:
he turneth
<05186> (8686)
it whithersoever he will
<02654> (8799)_.
Every way
<01870>
of a man
<0376>
[is] right
<03477>
in his own eyes
<05869>_:
but the LORD
<03068>
pondereth
<08505> (8802)
the hearts
<03826>_.
To do
<06213> (8800)
justice
<06666>
and judgment
<04941>
[is] more acceptable
<0977> (8737)
to the LORD
<03068>
than sacrifice
<02077>_.
An high
<07312>
look
<05869>_,
and a proud
<07342>
heart
<03820>_,
[and] the plowing
<05215>
of the wicked
<07563>_,
[is] sin
<02403>_.
{An...: Heb. Haughtiness of eyes} {the plowing: or, the light}
The thoughts
<04284>
of the diligent
<02742>
[tend] only to plenteousness
<04195>_;
but of every one [that is] hasty
<0213> (8801)
only to want
<04270>_.
The getting
<06467>
of treasures
<0214>
by a lying
<08267>
tongue
<03956>
[is] a vanity
<01892>
tossed to and fro of
<05086> (8737)
them that seek
<01245> (8764)
death
<04194>_.
The robbery
<07701>
of the wicked
<07563>
shall destroy
<01641> (8799)
them; because they refuse
<03985> (8765)
to do
<06213> (8800)
judgment
<04941>_.
{destroy...: Heb. saw them, or, dwell with them}
The way
<01870>
of man
<0376>
[is] froward
<02019>
and strange
<02054>_:
but [as for] the pure
<02134>_,
his work
<06467>
[is] right
<03477>_.
[It is] better
<02896>
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
in a corner
<06438>
of the housetop
<01406>_,
than with a brawling
<04079> (8675) <04066>
woman
<0802>
in a wide
<02267>
house
<01004>_.
{a brawling...: Heb. a woman of contentions} {a wide...: Heb. an house of society}
The soul
<05315>
of the wicked
<07563>
desireth
<0183> (8765)
evil
<07451>_:
his neighbour
<07453>
findeth no favour
<02603> (8717)
in his eyes
<05869>_.
{findeth...: Heb. is not favoured}
When the scorner
<03887> (8801)
is punished
<06064> (8800)_,
the simple
<06612>
is made wise
<02449> (8799)_:
and when the wise
<02450>
is instructed
<07919> (8687)_,
he receiveth
<03947> (8799)
knowledge
<01847>_.
The righteous
<06662>
[man] wisely considereth
<07919> (8688)
the house
<01004>
of the wicked
<07563>_:
[but God] overthroweth
<05557> (8764)
the wicked
<07563>
for [their] wickedness
<07451>_.
Whoso stoppeth
<0331> (8801)
his ears
<0241>
at the cry
<02201>
of the poor
<01800>_,
he also shall cry
<07121> (8799)
himself, but shall not be heard
<06030> (8735)_.
A gift
<04976>
in secret
<05643>
pacifieth
<03711> (8799)
anger
<0639>_:
and a reward
<07810>
in the bosom
<02436>
strong
<05794>
wrath
<02534>_.
[It is] joy
<08057>
to the just
<06662>
to do
<06213> (8800)
judgment
<04941>_:
but destruction
<04288>
[shall be] to the workers
<06466> (8802)
of iniquity
<0205>_.
The man
<0120>
that wandereth
<08582> (8802)
out of the way
<01870>
of understanding
<07919> (8687)
shall remain
<05117> (8799)
in the congregation
<06951>
of the dead
<07496>_.
He that loveth
<0157> (8802)
pleasure
<08057>
[shall be] a poor
<04270>
man
<0376>_:
he that loveth
<0157> (8802)
wine
<03196>
and oil
<08081>
shall not be rich
<06238> (8686)_.
{pleasure: or, sport}
The wicked
<07563>
[shall be] a ransom
<03724>
for the righteous
<06662>_,
and the transgressor
<0898> (8802)
for the upright
<03477>_.
[It is] better
<02896>
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
in the wilderness
<0776> <04057>_,
than with a contentious
<04079> (8675) <04066>
and an angry
<03708>
woman
<0802>_.
{in...: Heb. in the land of the desert}
[There is] treasure
<0214>
to be desired
<02530> (8737)
and oil
<08081>
in the dwelling
<05116>
of the wise
<02450>_;
but a foolish
<03684>
man
<0120>
spendeth it up
<01104> (8762)_.
He that followeth
<07291> (8802)
after righteousness
<06666>
and mercy
<02617>
findeth
<04672> (8799)
life
<02416>_,
righteousness
<06666>_,
and honour
<03519>_.
A wise
<02450>
[man] scaleth
<05927> (8804)
the city
<05892>
of the mighty
<01368>_,
and casteth down
<03381> (8686)
the strength
<05797>
of the confidence
<04009>
thereof.
Whoso keepeth
<08104> (8802)
his mouth
<06310>
and his tongue
<03956>
keepeth
<08104> (8802)
his soul
<05315>
from troubles
<06869>_.
Proud
<02086>
[and] haughty
<03093>
scorner
<03887> (8801)
[is] his name
<08034>_,
who dealeth
<06213> (8802)
in proud
<02087>
wrath
<05678>_.
{in proud...: Heb. in the wrath of pride}
The desire
<08378>
of the slothful
<06102>
killeth
<04191> (8686)
him; for his hands
<03027>
refuse
<03985> (8765)
to labour
<06213> (8800)_.
He coveteth
<0183> (8694)
greedily
<08378>
all the day
<03117>
long: but the righteous
<06662>
giveth
<05414> (8799)
and spareth
<02820> (8799)
not.
The sacrifice
<02077>
of the wicked
<07563>
[is] abomination
<08441>_:
how much more, [when] he bringeth
<0935> (8686)
it with a wicked mind
<02154>_?
{with...: Heb. in wickedness?}
A false
<03577>
witness
<05707>
shall perish
<06> (8799)_:
but the man
<0376>
that heareth
<08085> (8802)
speaketh
<01696> (8762)
constantly
<05331>_.
{A...: Heb. A witness of lies}
A wicked
<07563>
man
<0376>
hardeneth
<05810> (8689)
his face
<06440>_:
but [as for] the upright
<03477>_,
he directeth
<0995> (8799) (8675) <03559> (8686)
his way
<01870>_.
{directeth: or, considereth}
[There is] no wisdom
<02451>
nor understanding
<08394>
nor counsel
<06098>
against the LORD
<03068>_.
The horse
<05483>
[is] prepared
<03559> (8716)
against the day
<03117>
of battle
<04421>_:
but safety
<08668>
[is] of the LORD
<03068>_.
{safety: or, victory}
