Proverbs 16:1-6 NLT

1 We can gather our thoughts, but the LORD gives the right answer.
2 People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives.
3 Commit your work to the LORD, and then your plans will succeed.
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.
