DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 21:1-13

The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord;he turns it wherever he will. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,but the Lord weighs the heart. To do righteousness and justiceis more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. Haughty eyes and a proud heart,the lamp of the wicked, are sin. The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance,but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. The getting of treasures by a lying tongueis a fleeting vapor and a snare of death. The violence of the wicked will sweep them away,because they refuse to do what is just. The way of the guilty is crooked,but the conduct of the pure is upright. It is better to live in a corner of the housetopthan in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife. The soul of the wicked desires evil;his neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes. When a scoffer is punished, the simple becomes wise;when a wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge. The Righteous One observes the house of the wicked;he throws the wicked down to ruin. Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poorwill himself call out and not be answered.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE PSALM 77:1-20

To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.I cry aloud to God,aloud to God, and he will hear me. In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;my soul refuses to be comforted. When I remember God, I moan;when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah You hold my eyelids open;I am so troubled that I cannot speak. I consider the days of old,the years long ago. I said, "Let me remember my song in the night;let me meditate in my heart."Then my spirit made a diligent search: "Will the Lord spurn forever,and never again be favorable? Has his steadfast love forever ceased?Are his promises at an end for all time? Has God forgotten to be gracious?Has he in anger shut up his compassion?" Selah Then I said, "I will appeal to this,to the years of the right hand of the Most High." I will remember the deeds of the Lord;yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work,and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy.What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders;you have made known your might among the peoples. You with your arm redeemed your people,the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah When the waters saw you, O God,when the waters saw you, they were afraid;indeed, the deep trembled. The clouds poured out water;the skies gave forth thunder;your arrows flashed on every side. The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;your lightnings lighted up the world;the earth trembled and shook. Your way was through the sea,your path through the great waters;yet your footprints were unseen. You led your people like a flockby the hand of Moses and Aaron.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 19:8-17

Whoever gets sense loves his own soul;he who keeps understanding will discover good. A false witness will not go unpunished,and he who breathes out lies will perish. It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury,much less for a slave to rule over princes. Good sense makes one slow to anger,and it is his glory to overlook an offense. A king's wrath is like the growling of a lion,but his favor is like dew on the grass. A foolish son is ruin to his father,and a wife's quarreling is a continual dripping of rain. House and wealth are inherited from fathers,but a prudent wife is from the Lord. Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep,and an idle person will suffer hunger. Whoever keeps the commandment keeps his life;he who despises his ways will die. Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,and he will repay him for his deed.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 17:3-13

The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,and the Lord tests hearts. An evildoer listens to wicked lips,and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue. Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker;he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished. Grandchildren are the crown of the aged,and the glory of children is their fathers. Fine speech is not becoming to a fool;still less is false speech to a prince. A bribe is like a magic stone in the eyes of the one who gives it;wherever he turns he prospers. Whoever covers an offense seeks love,but he who repeats a matter separates close friends. A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understandingthan a hundred blows into a fool. An evil man seeks only rebellion,and a cruel messenger will be sent against him. Let a man meet a she-bear robbed of her cubsrather than a fool in his folly. If anyone returns evil for good,evil will not depart from his house.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 16:1-18

The plans of the heart belong to man,but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord,and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose,even the wicked for the day of trouble. Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;be assured, he will not go unpunished. By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil. When a man's ways please the Lord,he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousnessthan great revenues with injustice. The heart of man plans his way,but the Lord establishes his steps. An oracle is on the lips of a king;his mouth does not sin in judgment. A just balance and scales are the Lord's;all the weights in the bag are his work. It is an abomination to kings to do evil,for the throne is established by righteousness. Righteous lips are the delight of a king,and he loves him who speaks what is right. A king's wrath is a messenger of death,and a wise man will appease it. In the light of a king's face there is life,and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain. How much better to get wisdom than gold!To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. The highway of the upright turns aside from evil;whoever guards his way preserves his life. Pride goes before destruction,and a haughty spirit before a fall.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 15:1-7

A soft answer turns away wrath,but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,but the mouths of fools pour out folly. The eyes of the Lord are in every place,keeping watch on the evil and the good. A gentle tongue is a tree of life,but perverseness in it breaks the spirit. A fool despises his father's instruction,but whoever heeds reproof is prudent. In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,but trouble befalls the income of the wicked. The lips of the wise spread knowledge;not so the hearts of fools.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PROVERBS 14:26-35

In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence,and his children will have a refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,that one may turn away from the snares of death. In a multitude of people is the glory of a king,but without people a prince is ruined. Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly. A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh,but envy makes the bones rot. Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,but he who is generous to the needy honors him. The wicked is overthrown through his evildoing,but the righteous finds refuge in his death. Wisdom rests in the heart of a man of understanding,but it makes itself known even in the midst of fools. Righteousness exalts a nation,but sin is a reproach to any people. A servant who deals wisely has the king's favor,but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE - PSALM 76:1-12

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.In Judah God is known;his name is great in Israel. His abode has been established in Salem,his dwelling place in Zion. There he broke the flashing arrows,the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah Glorious are you, more majesticthan the mountains of prey. The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;they sank into sleep;all the men of warwere unable to use their hands. At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,both rider and horse lay stunned. But you, you are to be feared!Who can stand before youwhen once your anger is roused? From the heavens you uttered judgment;the earth feared and was still, when God arose to establish judgment,to save all the humble of the earth. Selah Surely the wrath of man shall praise you;the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt. Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;let all around him bring giftsto him who is to be feared, who cuts off the spirit of princes,who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
