ContextThe King's Heart is in the Lord's Hand
1The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he will. 2Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD ponders the hearts. 3To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. 4An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. 5The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenty; but of every one that is hasty only to want. 6The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. 7The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. 8The way of man is fraudulent and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. 9It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. 10The soul of the wicked desires evil: his neighbor finds no favor in his eyes. 11When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge. 12The righteous man wisely considers the house of the wicked: but God overthrows the wicked for their wickedness. 13Whoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. 14A gift in secret pacifies anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath. 15It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. 16The man that wanders out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. 17He that loves pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loves wine and oil shall not be rich. 18The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright. 19It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. 20There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spends it up. 21He that follows after righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness, and honor. 22A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and casts down the strength of the confidence thereof. 23Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles. 24Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who deals in proud wrath. 25The desire of the slothful kills him; for his hands refuse to labor. 26He covets greedily all the day long: but the righteous gives and spares not. 27The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind? 28A false witness shall perish: but the man that hears speaks constantly. 29A wicked man hardens his face: but as for the upright, he directs his way. 30There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. 31The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
