Gleanings from Proverbs 21

Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.

To do righteousness and justice is desired by the Lord more than sacrifice.

Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, is sin.

The acquisition of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor, the pursuit of death.

The exercise of justice is joy for the righteous, but is terror to the workers of iniquity.

He who pursues righteousness and loyalty finds life, righteousness, and honor.

He who guards his mouth and his tongue, guards his soul from troubles.

A false witness will perish, but the man who listens to the truth will speak forever.
