PROVERBS 20:

~Who can say “I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin?”

~Differing weights and differing measures–the Lord detests them both.

~Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel.

~A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.

~Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and He will deliver you.

~A man’s steps are directed by the Lord. How can he understand his own way?

~It is a trap for a man to dedicate something rashly and only later to consider his vows.

~The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old.

 

PROVERBS 21

~To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

~A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.

~The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right.

~Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

~If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.

~A man who strays from the path of understanding comes to rest in the company of the dead.

~He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity, and honor.

~There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.
