Proverbs 16:8-18 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
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. 15 When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a gentle rain. 16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, and understanding than silver! 17 The path of the upright leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe. 18 Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.
