Pertinent Points and Angles

I fell upon these passages . . . while loosely considering the times.  These verses struck me as especially pertinent related to staying in the right frame of mind and heart to cope in these days of judgment. . . .
Open rebuke is better than secret love.

The prudent sees danger and hides himself, the naive goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.

Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it completely. 
Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

Blessed is the man who always fears the LORD, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into evil.

The one whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but the one whose ways are perverse will fall into the pit.

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that makes haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

The one who trusts in himself is a fool, but one who walks in wisdom will be safe.

When the wicked are in authority, sin flourishes, but the godly will live to see their downfall.

An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous; and he that is of upright way is an abomination to the wicked.

O LORD, I know that the way humans act is not under their control. Humans do not direct their steps as they walk. 
Pour out your fury upon the nations that know you not, and upon the families that call not on your name.


Prov. 27:5,12; 28:5,6,14,18,20,26; 29:16,27; Jer. 10:23,25
