Proverbs 16:23-33 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
23 The mind of the wise makes his speech judicious, and adds persuasiveness to his lips. 24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. 25 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. 26 A worker's appetite works for him; his mouth urges him on. 27 A worthless man plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire. 28 A perverse man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends. 29 A man of violence entices his neighbor and leads him in a way that is not good. 30 He who winks his eyes plans perverse things, he who compresses his lips brings evil to pass. 31 A hoary head is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life. 32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. 33 The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly from the LORD.
