Proverbs 21

(19:20-24:34) -continued

True ruler of man

1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.

Something to consider

__________________________________

Better than sacrifices

3
To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

Three common sins

4
A haughty look, a proud heart, And the plowing of the wicked are sin.

Seven ways of man

__________________________________

5
The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty. 6 Getting treasures by a lying tongue Is the fleeting fantasy of those who seek death. 7 The violence of the wicked will destroy them, Because they refuse to do justice. 8 The way of a guilty man is perverse; But as for the pure, his work is right.

Another better thing

9 Better to dwell
in a corner of a housetop, Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.

Six common classes

10 The soul of
the wicked desires evil; His neighbor finds no favor in his eyes. 11 When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise; But when the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge. 12 The righteous God wisely considers the house of the wicked, Overthrowing the wicked for their wickedness.

Sowing and reaping

13 Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor
Will also cry himself and not be heard.

How to appease anger

14
A gift in secret pacifies anger, And a bribe behind the back, strong wrath.

Two kinds of pleasure

__________________________________

15 It is a joy
for the just to do justice, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.

How to remain dead

__________________________________

16 A man who wanders from the way of understanding Will rest
in the assembly of the dead.

How to remain poor

__________________________________

17 He who loves pleasure will be a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not be
rich.

Secret of preservation of man

__________________________________

18
The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, And the unfaithful for the upright.

Another better thing

__________________________________

19 Better to dwell
in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and angry woman.

How to maintain treasures

__________________________________

20 There is desirable treasure, And oil in the dwelling of the wise, But
a foolish man squanders it.

Three blessings of right living

__________________________________

21 He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds
life, righteousness and honor.

Wisdom greater than power

__________________________________

22
A wise man scales the city of the mighty, And brings down the trusted stronghold.

Secret of security

__________________________________

23 Whoever guards
his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles.

Six common classes

__________________________________

24 A proud and haughty man -
"Scoffer" is his name; He acts with arrogant pride. 25 The desire of the lazy man kills him, For his hands refuse to labor. 26 He covets greedily all day long, But the righteous gives and does not spare. 27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination; How much more when he brings it with wicked intent! 28 A false witness shall perish, But the man who hears him will speak endlessly. 29 A wicked man hardens his face, But as for the upright, he establishes his way.

God is immune to evil

30 There is no wisdom or understanding Or counsel against the LORD.

True safety

31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But deliverance is of
the LORD.
