Proverbs 16

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, [is] from the LORD.

16:2 All the ways of a man [are] clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

16:4 The LORD hath made all [things] for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

16:5 Every one [that is] proud in heart [is] an abomination to the LORD: [though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.

16:7 When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

16:8 Better [is] a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

16:9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

16:10 A divine sentence [is] in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.

16:11 A just weight and balance [are] the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag [are] his work.

16:12 [It is] an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

16:13 Righteous lips [are] the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.

16:14 The wrath of a king [is as] messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.

16:15 In the light of the king's countenance [is] life; and his favour [is] as a cloud of the latter rain.

16:16 How much better [is it] to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

16:17 The highway of the upright [is] to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

16:18 Pride [goeth] before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

16:19 Better [it is to be] of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

16:20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy [is] he.

16:21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.

16:22 Understanding [is] a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools [is] folly.

16:23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

16:24 Pleasant words [are as] an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death.

16:26 He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.

16:27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips [there is] as a burning fire.

16:28 A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.

16:29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way [that is] not good.

16:30 He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.

16:31 The hoary head [is] a crown of glory, [if] it be found in the way of righteousness.

16:32 [He that is] slow to anger [is] better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof [is] of the LORD.
