Proverbs 16:1-11 CEBA

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.
