21:1 The king's heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.

21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.

21:3 To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.

21:4 A high look, and a proud heart, `Even' the lamp of the wicked, is sin.

21:5 The thoughts of the diligent `tend' only to plenteousness; But every one that is hasty `hasteth' only to want.

21:6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue Is a vapor driven to and fro by them that seek death.

21:7 The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away, Because they refuse to do justice.

21:8 The way of him that is laden with guilt is exceeding crooked; But as for the pure, his work is right.

21:9 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.

21:10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: His neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.

21:11 When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise; And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.

21:12 The righteous man considereth the house of the wicked, `How' the wicked are overthrown to `their' ruin.

21:13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, He also shall cry, but shall not be heard.

21:14 A gift in secret pacifieth anger; And a present in the bosom, strong wrath.

21:15 It is joy to the righteous to do justice; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.

21:16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding Shall rest in the assembly of the dead.

21:17 He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

21:18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; And the treacherous `cometh' in the stead of the upright.

21:19 It is better to dwell in a desert land, Than with a contentious and fretful woman.

21:20 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; But a foolish man swalloweth it up.

21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and kindness Findeth life, righteousness, and honor.

21:22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, And bringeth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue Keepeth his soul from troubles.

21:24 The proud and haughty man, scoffer is his name; He worketh in the arrogance of pride.

21:25 The desire of the sluggard killeth him; For his hands refuse to labor.

21:26 There is that coveteth greedily all the day long; But the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.

21:27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind!

21:28 A false witness shall perish; But the man that heareth shall speak so as to endure.

21:29 A wicked man hardeneth his face; But as for the upright, he establisheth his ways.

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

21:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle; But victory is of Jehovah.
