It is the part of man to prepare the soul: and of the Lord to govern the tongue.
All the ways of a man are open to his eyes: the Lord is the weigher of spirits.
Lay open thy works to the Lord: and thy thoughts shall be directed.
The Lord hath made all things for himself: the wicked also for the evil day.
Every proud man is an abomination to the Lord: though hand should be joined to hand, he is not innocent. The beginning of a good way is to do justice: and this is more acceptable with God, than to offer sacrifices.
By mercy and truth iniquity is redeemed; and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.
