Proverbs 16

JuliaSmith(i) 1 To man the dispositions of the heart, and the answer of the tongue from Jehovah. 2 All the ways of man are clean in his eyes, and Jehovah tried the spirits. 3 Roll to Jehovah thy works, and thy purposes shall be established. 4 Jehovah made all to his purpose, and also the unjust for the day of evil. 5 Every one lifted up of heart an abomination to Jehovah: and hand to hand, shall not be unpunished. 6 By mercy and truth iniquity shall be expiated: and in the fear of Jehovah a departing from evil. 7 The ways of a man being accepted of Jehovah also he will make his enemies friends with him. 8 Good a little with justice above abundance of increase with no judgment 9 The heart of man will purpose his ways, and Jehovah will prepare his steps. 10 Divining upon the lips of the king: his mouth will not transgress in judgment 11 Weighing and balances of judgment are to Jehovah, and his work all the stones of the bag. 12 An abomination of kings to do injustice: for in justice shall the throne be prepared. 13 Lips of justice the acceptance of kings; and he will love the word of the upright 14 The king's wrath, messengers of death: and a wise man shall expiate it 15 In the light of the king's face is life, and his acceptance as the cloud of the latter rain. 16 The obtaining of wisdom how good above gold and the obtaining of understanding to be chosen above silver. 17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: to watch his ways the guarding of his soul. 18 Pride before a breaking, and a spirit lifted up before a fall 19 Good the cast down of spirit with the humble more than to divide the spoil with the proud. 20 He understanding in the word shall find good: and he trusting in Jehovah, he being happy. 21 He understanding shall call to the wise of heart: and sweetness of lips shall add knowledge 22 The understanding of him possessing it is a fountain of life: and the instruction of the foolish is folly. 23 The heart of the wise shall attend to his mouth, and he shall add knowledge to his lips. 24 Words of pleasantness an, honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and healing to the bones. 25 There is a way straight before a man, and its latter state the ways of death. 26 The soul of him laboring, labored for himself; for his mouth urged upon him. 27 A man of Belial dug up evil, and upon his lips, as a burning fire. 28 A man of perverseness shall send forth strife: and a tale-bearer separates friends. 29 A man of violence will seduce his neighbor, and he caused him to go in a way not good. 30 Closing his eyes to purpose perverseness: biting his lips he completed evil. 31 Old age a crown of glorying, shall be found in the way of justice. 32 He slow to anger is, good above the strong; and, he ruling over his spirit above him taking a city, 33 In the bosom he shall, cast the lot; and from Jehovah all his judgment
