Proverbs 16:1-11 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
1 To people belong the plans of the heart, but the answer of the tongue comes from the LORD. 2 All the ways of people are pure in their eyes, but the LORD tests the motives. 3 Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. 4 The LORD made everything for a purpose, even the wicked for an evil day. 5 The LORD detests all who are arrogant; they surely won't go unpunished. 6 Love and faithfulness reconcile guilt; the fear of the LORD turns away evil. 7 When a person's path draws favor from the LORD, even their enemies are at peace with them. 8 Better a little with righteousness than great profits without justice. 9 People plan their path, but the LORD secures their steps. 10 A king's speech is like an oracle; in a judgment, one can't go against his words. 11 Honest balances and scales are the LORD's; all the weights in the bag are his doing.
