Proverbs 16:11-21 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
11 Honest balances and scales are the Lord's; all the weights in the baga are His concern.b 12 Wicked behaviorc is detestable to kings, since a throne is established through righteousness.d 13 Righteous lips are a king's delight, and he loves one who speaks honestly. 14 A king's fury is a messenger of death, but a wise man appeases it.e 15 When a king's face lights up, there is life; his favor is like a cloud with spring rain. 16 Acquire wisdom- how much better it is than gold! And acquire understanding- it is preferable to silver.f 17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; the one who guards his way protects his life.g 18 Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.h 19 Better to be lowly of spirit with the humblei than to divide plunder with the proud.j 20 The one who understands a matter finds success, and the one who trusts in the Lord will be happy.k 21 Anyone with a wise heart is called discerning, and pleasant speechl increases learning.m
