Proverbs of a 40 yr old man

Always be fair! But some people will obey an evil request, even if their reward is a mere sandwich. Evildoers do not understand what is right, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully. Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly. Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly. A good person is always fair. But some people do not care whether their actions are good or evil. They only want money. Or they only want a reward. And if someone rewards them, they will do anything. They would even do evil things.

A sandwich is not a big reward. But even such a small gift is enough to persuade some people to do an evil deed. For the LORD your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God, who shows no partiality and cannot be bribed. The LORD Jesus is king! Let the nations tremble! He sits on his throne between the cherubim. Let the whole earth quake! The LORD sits in majesty in Jerusalem, exalted above all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name. Your name is holy! Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established fairness. You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel. Exalt the LORD our God! Bow low before his feet, for he is holy!
