The Proverbs - Chapter 21
The Proverbs Chapters
2 All actions are straight in the doer's own eyes, but it is Yahweh who weighs hearts.
3 To do what is upright and just is more pleasing to Yahweh than sacrifice.
6 To make a fortune with the help of a lying tongue: such is the idle fantasy of those who look for death.
7 The violence of the wicked proves their ruin, for they refuse to do what is right.
11 When a cynic is punished, simpletons grow wiser, but someone of understanding acquires knowledge by instruction.
13 Whoever refuses to listen to the cry of the weak, will in turn plead and not be heard.
15 Doing what is right fills the upright with joy, but evil-doers with terror.
19 Better to live in a desert land than with a quarrelsome and irritable woman.
21 Whoever pursues uprightness and faithful love will find life, uprightness and honour.
24 Insolent, haughty -- the name is 'Cynic'; overweening pride marks such behaviour.
25 The idler's desires are the death of him, since his hands will do no work.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abhorrent, above all if it is offered for bad motives.
29 The wicked man's strength shows on his face, but the honest it is whose steps are firm.
