Proverbs 16

ECB(i) 1 The arrangements of the heart are from humanity; and the answer of the tongue is from Yah Veh. 2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes; and Yah Veh gauges the spirits. 3 Roll your works unto Yah Veh and your fabrications are established. 4 Yah Veh made all to answer to him; yes, even the wicked for the day of evil. 5 The lofty heart is an abhorrence to Yah Veh; hand by hand he is not exonerated. 6 By mercy and truth iniquity kapars/atones; and by the awe of Yah Veh evil turns aside. 7 When the ways of man please Yah Veh, even his enemies shalam him. 8 Better, a little with justness than great produce without judgment. 9 The human heart fabricates his way; and Yah Veh establishes his pace. 10 Divination is in the lips of the sovereign; his mouth treasons not in judgment. 11 A just weight and balance are of Yah Veh; all the stones of the pouch are his work. 12 It is an abhorrence for sovereigns to work wickedness; for the throne is established by justness. 13 Lips of justness are the pleasure of sovereigns; and they love him who words straight. 14 The fury of a sovereign is as angels of death; and a wise man kapars/atones. 15 In the light of the face of the sovereign is life; and his pleasure is as a thick cloud of the after rain. 16 To chattelize wisdom; how much better than ore! and to chattelize discernment to be chosen above silver! 17 The highway of the straight is to turn aside from evil; he who guards his way guards his soul. 18 Pomp is at the face of the breech and a lifted spirit is at the face of the stumble. 19 Better, a lowly spirit with the humble, than to allot the spoil with the pompous. 20 He who handles a word comprehendingly finds good; and whoever confides in Yah Veh, O how blithe. 21 The wise in heart is called, Discerning; and the sweetness of the lips increases doctrine. 22 Comprehension is a fountain of life to its master; and the discipline of fools is folly. 23 The heart of the wise comprehends his mouth and adds doctrine to his lips. 24 Pleasant sayings are as a honeycomb - sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. 25 There is a straight way, at the face of man; and its finality, the ways of death. 26 The soul of the toiler toils for himself for the craving of his mouth: 27 a man of Beli Yaal digs evil; and in his lips, as an inflamed fire: 28 a man of perversions sends strife; and a whisperer separates chiliarchs: 29 a man of violence entices his friend and walks him into the way - not good: 30 He shuts his eyes to fabricate perversions; bites his lips to conclude evil. 31 Greyness is a crown of beauty found in the way of justness. 32 Better, slow to wrath, than mighty; - to reign over the spirit, than to capture a city. 33 The pebble is cast into the bosom; and all judgment is of Yah Veh.
