211 In the Lord's hand the king's heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.

Commentary on Proverbs 21:1

(Read Proverbs 21:1)

The believer, perceiving that the Lord rules every heart as he sees fit, like the husbandman who turns the water through his grounds as he pleases, seeks to have his own heart, and the hearts of others, directed in his faith, fear, and love.
