Proverbs 16:4-14 (English Standard Version)

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