Proverbs 16:4-14 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
4 The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for punishment. 5 The LORD despises pride; be assured that the proud will be punished. 6 Unfailing love and faithfulness cover sin; evil is avoided by fear of the LORD. 7 When the ways of people please the LORD, he makes even their enemies live at peace with them. 8 It is better to be poor and godly than rich and dishonest. 9 We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps. 10 The king speaks with divine wisdom; he must never judge unfairly. 11 The LORD demands fairness in every business deal; he sets the standard. 12 A king despises wrongdoing, for his rule depends on his justice. 13 The king is pleased with righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly. 14 The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise do what they can to appease it.
