Proverbs Chapter 16

-; , . 1 The preparations of the heart are man's, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
--, ; . 2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
- ; , . 3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
, ; -, . 4 The LORD hath made every things for His own purpose, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
, --; , . 5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; my hand upon it! he shall not be unpunished.
, ‍; , . 6 By mercy and truth iniquity is expiated; and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
, -; -, . 7 When a man's ways please the LORD, He maketh 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 heart deviseth his way; but the LORD directeth his steps.
--; , -. 10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king; his mouth trespasseth not in judgment.
, --; , --. 11 A just balance and scales are the LORD'S; all the weights of the bag are His work.
, : , . 12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness.
, -; . 13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
- -; . 14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death; but a wise man will pacify it.
-- ; , . 15 In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
---- ; , . 16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.
, ; , . 17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
- ; , . 18 Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
-, - (); , -. 19 Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with the humble, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
-, -; . 20 He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.
-, ; , . 21 The wise in heart is called a man of discernment; and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
, ; . 22 Understanding is a fountain of life unto him that hath it; but folly is the chastisement of fools.
, ; -, . 23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
-, -; , . 24 Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
, -; , -. 25 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
, : - . 26 The hunger of the labouring man laboureth for him; for his mouth compelleth him.
, ; - (), . 27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil, and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
, ; , . 28 A froward man soweth strife; and a whisperer separateth familiar friends.
, ; , -. 29 A man of violence enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into a way that is not good.
, ; , . 30 He that shutteth his eyes, it is to devise froward things; he that biteth his lips bringeth evil to pass.
; , . 31 The hoary head is a crown of glory, it is found in the way of righteousness.
, ; , . 32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
, -; , -. 33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
