Proverbs 16:23-33

23 The mind of the wise makes their speech insightful and enhances the teaching of their lips.
24 Pleasant words are flowing honey, sweet to the taste and healing to the bones.
25 There is a path that may seem straight to someone, but in the end it is the path of death.
26 The appetite of workers labors for them, for their hunger presses them on.
27 Worthless people dig up trouble; their lips are like a scorching fire.
28 Destructive people produce conflict; gossips alienate close friends.
29 Violent people entice their neighbors and walk them down a path that isn't good.
30 Those who wink their eye plot destruction; those who purse their lips plan evil.
31 Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is found on the path of righteousness.
32 Better to be patient than a warrior, and better to have self-control than to capture a city.
33 The dice are cast into the lap; all decisions are from the LORD.
