Words to Live By – Feb. 2

February 2, 2007 Leave a comment

16 There are six things that the Lord hates,
seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
feet that make haste to run to evil,
19 a false witness who breathes out lies,
and one who sows discord among brothers.

(Proverbs 6:16-19, ESV)

33 The Lord‘s curse is on the house of the wicked,
but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.

35 The wise will inherit honor, but fools get disgrace.
(Proverbs 3:33-35 ESV)

21 My son, do not lose sight of these—
keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 and they will be life for your soul
and adornment for your neck.
23 Then you will walk on your way securely,
and your foot will not stumble.
24 If you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
26 for the Lord will be your confidence
and will keep your foot from being caught.
(Proverbs 3:21-26 ESV)
