Proverbs 16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8  Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

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

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