1 To man belong the plans of the heart. He ponders them in his mind.
God sees them all right from the start; determines them every time.
2 Each man thinks his motives are pure and justifies his desire.
God, who knows our hearts for sure, will test them in life’s fire.
3 To commit one’s plans unto the Lord is important for all to do.
Wisdom and strength shall be your reward; He will carry you through.
5 The Lord is not pleased with the proud of heart and their defiant spirit.
Wisdom and honor He cannot impart, for pompous men won’t hear it.
7 When a man’s ways are pleasing to Him, God’s grace will only increase.
Trials may come strong and grim, but ultimately he will see peace.
10 The lips of the king must be true and fair, for he speaks from heaven above.
Justice and honor he must declare as he rules with wisdom and love.
12 The Lord demands accurate scales. A king should never cheat.
How could you respect a king marked by lies and deceit?
17 The pathway of the righteous man leaves evil far behind.
How good it is to spend our life span righteously inclined.
22 Discretion is like a bubbling fountain to wise men who possess it.
The ignorant fool in his time of need is too lazy to address it.
28 Agitators sow seeds of strife; their gossip separates friends.
With wicked hearts they walk through life never making amends.
31 If you advanced to gray hair age, that’s a very good thing.
Living for God at every stage will honor and blessing bring.
Once again we come to the end of additional sets of instruction.
Every day we have to spend enhance our character construction.
Waste no time on wood, hay, or stubble; construct a house that will stand.
Build your life with heaven in mind fulfilling the Master Plan.
