Proverbs
Chapter 21

21:1 Rivulets of waters `is' the heart of a king in the hand of Jehovah, Wherever He pleaseth He inclineth it.

21:2 Every way of a man `is' right in his own eyes, And Jehovah is pondering hearts.

21:3 To do righteousness and judgment, Is chosen of Jehovah rather than sacrifice.

21:4 Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the wicked `is' sin.

21:5 The purposes of the diligent `are' only to advantage, And of every hasty one, only to want.

21:6 The making of treasures by a lying tongue, `Is' a vanity driven away of those seeking death.

21:7 The spoil of the wicked catcheth them, Because they have refused to do judgment.

21:8 Froward `is' the way of a man who is vile, And the pure -- upright `is' his work.

21:9 Better to sit on a corner of the roof, Than `with' a woman of contentions and a house of company.

21:10 The soul of the wicked hath desired evil, Not gracious in his eyes is his neighbour.

21:11 When the scorner is punished, the simple becometh wise, And in giving understanding to the wise He receiveth knowledge.

21:12 The Righteous One is acting wisely Towards the house of the wicked, He is overthrowing the wicked for wickedness.

21:13 Whoso is shutting his ear from the cry of the poor, He also doth cry, and is not answered.

21:14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger, And a bribe in the bosom strong fury.

21:15 To do justice `is' joy to the righteous, But ruin to workers of iniquity.

21:16 A man who is wandering from the way of understanding, In an assembly of Rephaim resteth.

21:17 Whoso `is' loving mirth `is' a poor man, Whoso is loving wine and oil maketh no wealth.

21:18 The wicked `is' an atonement for the righteous, And for the upright the treacherous dealer.

21:19 Better to dwell in a wilderness land, Than `with' a woman of contentions and anger.

21:20 A treasure to be desired, and oil, `Is' in the habitation of the wise, And a foolish man swalloweth it up.

21:21 Whoso is pursuing righteousness and kindness, Findeth life, righteousness, and honour.

21:22 A city of the mighty hath the wise gone up, And bringeth down the strength of its confidence.

21:23 Whoso is keeping his mouth and his tongue, Is keeping from adversities his soul.

21:24 Proud, haughty, scorner `is' his name, Who is working in the wrath of pride.

21:25 The desire of the slothful slayeth him, For his hands have refused to work.

21:26 All the day desiring he hath desired, And the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.

21:27 The sacrifice of the wicked `is' abomination, Much more when in wickedness he bringeth it.

21:28 A false witness doth perish, And an attentive man for ever speaketh.

21:29 A wicked man hath hardened by his face, And the upright -- he prepareth his way.

21:30 There is no wisdom, nor understanding, Nor counsel, over-against Jehovah.

21:31 A horse is prepared for a day of battle, And the deliverance `is' of Jehovah!
