The king’s heart is in Yahweh’s hand like the watercourses.
He turns it wherever he desires.

but Yahweh weighs the hearts.

is more acceptable to Yahweh than sacrifice.
4רוּם ־ עֵ֭ינַיִם וּרְחַב ־ לֵ֑ב נִ֖ר רְשָׁעִ֣ים חַטָּֽאת ׃Prv 21:4

the lamp of the wicked, is sin.

and everyone who is hasty surely rushes to poverty.

is a fleeting vapor for those who seek death.

because they refuse to do what is right.

than to share a house with a contentious woman.
