Proverbs 16:23-33 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
23 A wise man's heart guides his mouth,1 and his lips promote instruction.a2 24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,3 sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.4 25 There is a way that seems right to a man,5 but in the end it leads to death.6 26 The laborer's appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on. 27 A scoundrel7 plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.8 28 A perverse man stirs up dissension,9 and a gossip separates close friends.10 29 A violent man entices his neighbor and leads him down a path that is not good.11 30 He who winks12 with his eye is plotting perversity; he who purses his lips is bent on evil. 31 Gray hair is a crown of splendor;13 it is attained by a righteous life. 32 Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city. 33 The lot is cast14 into the lap, but its every decision15 is from the LORD.16
