Reading 1 Prv 30:5-9
Every word of God is tested;he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.Add nothing to his words,lest he reprove you, and you will be exposed as a deceiver.Two things I ask of you,deny them not to me before I die:Put falsehood and lying far from me,give me neither poverty nor riches;provide me only with the food I need;Lest, being full, I deny you,saying, "Who is the LORD?"Or, being in want, I steal,and profane the name of my God.

Reading 1 Prv 21:1-6, 10-13
Like a stream is the king's heart in the hand of the LORD;wherever it pleases him, he directs it.All the ways of a man may be right in his own eyes,but it is the LORD who proves hearts.To do what is right and justis more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.Haughty eyes and a proud heart–the tillage of the wicked is sin.The plans of the diligent are sure of profit,but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongueis chasing a bubble over deadly snares.The soul of the wicked man desires evil;his neighbor finds no pity in his eyes.When the arrogant man is punished, the simple are the wiser;when the wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.The just man appraises the house of the wicked:there is one who brings down the wicked to ruin.He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poorwill himself also call and not be heard.

Reading 1 Prv 3:27-34
Refuse no one the good on which he has a claimwhen it is in your power to do it for him.Say not to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,tomorrow I will give,” when you can give at once.Plot no evil against your neighbor,against one who lives at peace with you.Quarrel not with a man without cause,with one who has done you no harm.Envy not the lawless manand choose none of his ways:To the LORD the perverse one is an abomination,but with the upright is his friendship.The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked,but the dwelling of the just he blesses;When dealing with the arrogant, he is stern,but to the humble he shows kindness.
