Proverbs 16:1-9 NRS

1 The plans of the mind belong to mortals, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 All one's ways may be pure in one's own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3 Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5 All those who are arrogant are an abomination to the Lord; be assured, they will not go unpunished.
6 By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one avoids evil.
7 When the ways of people please the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.
8 Better is a little with righteousness than large income with injustice.
9 The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.
