Will You Listen?

Better to be a poor person who lives innocently
    than to be one who talks dishonestly and is a fool.
A person without knowledge is no good.
    A person in a hurry makes mistakes.
The stupidity of a person turns his life upside down,
    and his heart rages against Yahweh (Proverbs 19:1-3)

Entrust Your Efforts

A person thinks all his ways are pure,
    but Yahweh weighs motives.
Entrust your efforts to Yahweh,
    and your plans will succeed (Proverbs 16:2-3)

What God Hates

These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him:

A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil,

A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19)
