Proverbs 16:4-14 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
4 The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. 5 Every one who is arrogant is an abomination to the LORD; be assured, he will not go unpunished. 6 By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil. 7 When a man's ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. 8 Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice. 9 A man's mind plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. 10 Inspired decisions are on the lips of a king; his mouth does not sin in judgment. 11 A just balance and scales are the LORD's; all the weights in the bag are his work. 12 It is an abomination to kings to do evil, for the throne is established by righteousness. 13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right. 14 A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and a wise man will appease it.
