1 The [a]King’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of waters: he turneth it whithersoever it pleaseth him.

2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.

3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

4 A haughty look, and a proud heart which is the [b][c]light of the wicked, is sin.

5 The thoughts of the diligent do surely bring abundance; but [d]whosoever is hasty, cometh surely to poverty.

6 The gathering of treasures by a deceitful tongue, is vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

7 The [e]robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; for they have refused to execute judgment.
