020:021:001
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD,
as the rivers of water:
he turneth it whithersoever he will.


020:021:002
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes:
but the LORD pondereth the hearts.


020:021:003
To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.


020:021:004
An high look,
and a proud heart,
and the plowing of the wicked,
is sin.


020:021:005
The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness;
but of every one that is hasty only to want.


020:021:006
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.


020:021:007
The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them;
because they refuse to do judgment.


020:021:008
The way of man is froward and strange:
but as for the pure,
his work is right.


020:021:009
It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop,
than with a brawling woman in a wide house.


020:021:010
The soul of the wicked desireth evil:
his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.


020:021:011
When the scorner is punished,
the simple is made wise:
and when the wise is instructed,
he receiveth knowledge.


020:021:012
The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked:
but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.


020:021:013
Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor,
he also shall cry himself,
but shall not be heard.


020:021:014
A gift in secret pacifieth anger:
and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.


020:021:015
It is joy to the just to do judgment:
but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.


020:021:016
The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.


020:021:017
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man:
he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.


020:021:018
The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous,
and the transgressor for the upright.


020:021:019
It is better to dwell in the wilderness,
than with a contentious and an angry woman.


020:021:020
There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise;
but a foolish man spendeth it up.


020:021:021
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life,
righteousness,
and honour.


020:021:022
A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty,
and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.


020:021:023
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.


020:021:024
Proud and haughty scorner is his name,
who dealeth in proud wrath.


020:021:025
The desire of the slothful killeth him;
for his hands refuse to labour.


020:021:026
He coveteth greedily all the day long:
but the righteous giveth and spareth not.


020:021:027
The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination:
how much more,
when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?


020:021:028
A false witness shall perish:
but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.


020:021:029
A wicked man hardeneth his face:
but as for the upright,
he directeth his way.


020:021:030
There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.


020:021:031
The horse is prepared against the day of battle:
but safety is of the LORD.
