I would apply these proverbs to the direction our nations is going.
Pro 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Pro 11:9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
Pro 11:29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
Pro 12:7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.
Pro 12:13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
Pro 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Pro 12:19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
Pro 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
We are to repent and ask for forgiveness for ourselves, our nation and our leaders. Pray for peace and the LORD's direction.
