Proverbs 16:1-11 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
1 The plans of the heart belong to man, but 1the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. 2 2All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD 3 weighs the spirit. 3 4Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. 4 5The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even 6the wicked for the day of trouble. 5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is 7an abomination to the LORD; 8be assured, he will not go unpunished. 6 By 9steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by 10the fear of the LORD one 11turns away from evil. 7 When a man's ways please the LORD, 12he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. 8 13Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice. 9 14The heart of man plans his way, but 15the LORD establishes his steps. 10 16An oracle is on the lips of a king; his mouth does not sin in judgment. 11 17A just balance and scales are the LORD's; all the weights in the bag are his work.
