16 1The reflections of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.   2All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord evaluates the motives.[L]   3Commit your activities to the Lord, and your plans will be achieved.     4The Lord has prepared everything for His purpose— even the wicked for the day of disaster.   5Everyone with a proud heart is detestable to the Lord; be assured,[M] he will not go unpunished.   6Wickedness is atoned for by loyalty and faithfulness, and one turns from evil by the fear of the Lord.   7When a man’s ways please the Lord, He[N] makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.   8Better a little with righteousness than great income with injustice.   9A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.   10God’s verdict is on the lips of a king;[O] his mouth should not give an unfair judgment.   11Honest balances and scales are the Lord’s; all the weights in the bag[P] are His concern.     12Wicked behavior[Q] is detestable to kings, since a throne is established through righteousness.   13Righteous lips are a king’s delight, and he loves one who speaks honestly.   14A king’s fury is a messenger of death, but a wise man appeases it.   15When a king’s face lights up, there is life; his favor is like a cloud with spring rain.   16Get wisdom— how much better it is than gold! And get understanding— it is preferable to silver.     17The highway of the upright avoids evil; the one who guards his way protects his life.   18Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.   19Better to be lowly of spirit with the humble[R] than to divide plunder with the proud.   20The one who understands a matter finds success, and the one who trusts in the Lord will be happy.   21Anyone with a wise heart is called discerning, and pleasant speech[S] increases learning.     22Insight is a fountain of life for its possessor, but the discipline of fools is folly.   23A wise heart instructs its mouth and increases learning with its speech.[T]   24Pleasant words are a honeycomb: sweet to the taste[U] and health to the body.[V]   25There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.   26A worker’s appetite works for him because his hunger[W] urges him on.     27A worthless man digs up evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.   28A contrary man spreads conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.   29A violent man lures his neighbor, leading him in a way that is not good.   30The one who narrows his eyes is planning deceptions; the one who compresses his lips brings about evil.   31Gray hair is a glorious crown; it is found in the way of righteousness.   32Patience is better than power, and controlling one’s temper,[X] than capturing a city.     33The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
