Proverbs 21 (WEBP)
 The king’s heart is in Yahweh’s hand like the watercourses. He turns it wherever he desires.
 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but Yahweh weighs the hearts.
 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to Yahweh than sacrifice.
 A high look and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, is sin.
 The plans of the diligent surely lead to profit; and everyone who is hasty surely rushes to poverty.
 Getting treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor for those who seek death.
 The violence of the wicked will drive them away, because they refuse to do what is right.
 The way of the guilty is devious, but the conduct of the innocent is upright.
 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop than to share a house with a contentious woman.
 The soul of the wicked desires evil; his neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes.
 When the mocker is punished, the simple gains wisdom. When the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.
 The Righteous One considers the house of the wicked, and brings the wicked to ruin.
 Whoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he will also cry out, but shall not be heard.
 A gift in secret pacifies anger, and a bribe in the cloak, strong wrath.
 It is joy to the righteous to do justice; but it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
 The man who wanders out of the way of understanding shall rest in the assembly of the departed spirits.
 He who loves pleasure will be a poor man. He who loves wine and oil won’t be rich.
 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous, the treacherous for the upright.
 It is better to dwell in a desert land, than with a contentious and fretful woman.
 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man swallows it up.
 He who follows after righteousness and kindness finds life, righteousness, and honor.
 A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and brings down the strength of its confidence.
 Whoever guards his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles.
 The proud and arrogant man—“Scoffer” is his name— he works in the arrogance of pride.
 The desire of the sluggard kills him, for his hands refuse to labor.
 There are those who covet greedily all day long; but the righteous give and don’t withhold.
 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination— how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind!
 A false witness will perish. A man who listens speaks to eternity.
 A wicked man hardens his face; but as for the upright, he establishes his ways.
 There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against Yahweh.
 The horse is prepared for the day of battle; but victory is with Yahweh.

Proverbs 21 (KJVS)
 The king’s H4428 heart H3820 [is] in the hand H3027 of the LORD H3068, [as] the rivers H6388 of water H4325: he turneth H5186 (8686) it whithersoever he will H2654 (8799).
 Every way H1870 of a man H376 [is] right H3477 in his own eyes H5869: but the LORD H3068 pondereth H8505 (8802) the hearts H3826.
 To do H6213 (8800) justice H6666 and judgment H4941 [is] more acceptable H977 (8737) to the LORD H3068 than sacrifice H2077.
 An high H7312 look H5869, and a proud H7342 heart H3820, [and] the plowing H5215 of the wicked H7563, [is] sin H2403.
 The thoughts H4284 of the diligent H2742 [tend] only to plenteousness H4195; but of every one [that is] hasty H213 (8801) only to want H4270.
 The getting H6467 of treasures H214 by a lying H8267 tongue H3956 [is] a vanity H1892 tossed to and fro of H5086 (8737) them that seek H1245 (8764) death H4194.
 The robbery H7701 of the wicked H7563 shall destroy H1641 (8799) them; because they refuse H3985 (8765) to do H6213 (8800) judgment H4941.
 The way H1870 of man H376 [is] froward H2019 and strange H2054: but [as for] the pure H2134, his work H6467 [is] right H3477.
 [It is] better H2896 to dwell H3427 (8800) in a corner H6438 of the housetop H1406, than with a brawling H4079 (8675) H4066 woman H802 in a wide H2267 house H1004.
 The soul H5315 of the wicked H7563 desireth H183 (8765) evil H7451: his neighbour H7453 findeth no favour H2603 (8717) in his eyes H5869.
 When the scorner H3887 (8801) is punished H6064 (8800), the simple H6612 is made wise H2449 (8799): and when the wise H2450 is instructed H7919 (8687), he receiveth H3947 (8799) knowledge H1847.
 The righteous H6662 [man] wisely considereth H7919 (8688) the house H1004 of the wicked H7563: [but God] overthroweth H5557 (8764) the wicked H7563 for [their] wickedness H7451.
 Whoso stoppeth H331 (8801) his ears H241 at the cry H2201 of the poor H1800, he also shall cry H7121 (8799) himself, but shall not be heard H6030 (8735).
 A gift H4976 in secret H5643 pacifieth H3711 (8799) anger H639: and a reward H7810 in the bosom H2436 strong H5794 wrath H2534.
 [It is] joy H8057 to the just H6662 to do H6213 (8800) judgment H4941: but destruction H4288 [shall be] to the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205.
 The man H120 that wandereth H8582 (8802) out of the way H1870 of understanding H7919 (8687) shall remain H5117 (8799) in the congregation H6951 of the dead H7496.
 He that loveth H157 (8802) pleasure H8057 [shall be] a poor H4270 man H376: he that loveth H157 (8802) wine H3196 and oil H8081 shall not be rich H6238 (8686).
 The wicked H7563 [shall be] a ransom H3724 for the righteous H6662, and the transgressor H898 (8802) for the upright H3477.
 [It is] better H2896 to dwell H3427 (8800) in the wilderness H776 H4057, than with a contentious H4079 (8675) H4066 and an angry H3708 woman H802.
 [There is] treasure H214 to be desired H2530 (8737) and oil H8081 in the dwelling H5116 of the wise H2450; but a foolish H3684 man H120 spendeth it up H1104 (8762).
 He that followeth H7291 (8802) after righteousness H6666 and mercy H2617 findeth H4672 (8799) life H2416, righteousness H6666, and honour H3519.
 A wise H2450 [man] scaleth H5927 (8804) the city H5892 of the mighty H1368, and casteth down H3381 (8686) the strength H5797 of the confidence H4009 thereof.
 Whoso keepeth H8104 (8802) his mouth H6310 and his tongue H3956 keepeth H8104 (8802) his soul H5315 from troubles H6869.
 Proud H2086 [and] haughty H3093 scorner H3887 (8801) [is] his name H8034, who dealeth H6213 (8802) in proud H2087 wrath H5678.
 The desire H8378 of the slothful H6102 killeth H4191 (8686) him; for his hands H3027 refuse H3985 (8765) to labour H6213 (8800).
 He coveteth H183 (8694) greedily H8378 all the day H3117 long: but the righteous H6662 giveth H5414 (8799) and spareth H2820 (8799) not.
 The sacrifice H2077 of the wicked H7563 [is] abomination H8441: how much more, [when] he bringeth H935 (8686) it with a wicked mind H2154?
 A false H3577 witness H5707 shall perish H6 (8799): but the man H376 that heareth H8085 (8802) speaketh H1696 (8762) constantly H5331.
 A wicked H7563 man H376 hardeneth H5810 (8689) his face H6440: but [as for] the upright H3477, he directeth H995 (8799) (8675) H3559 (8686) his way H1870.
 [There is] no wisdom H2451 nor understanding H8394 nor counsel H6098 against the LORD H3068.
 The horse H5483 [is] prepared H3559 (8716) against the day H3117 of battle H4421: but safety H8668 [is] of the LORD H3068.
