Proverbs 16:23-33 RSV

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.
