Proverbs 16

  1 H4633 The preparations H3820 of the heart H120 belong to man H4617 , and the answer H3956 of the tongue H3068 , is from the LORD.
  2 H1870 All the ways H376 of a man H2134 are clean H5869 in his own eyes H3068 ; but the LORD H8505 [H8802] weigheth H7307 the spirits.
  3 H1556 [H8798] Commit H4639 thy works H3068 to the LORD H4284 , and thy thoughts H3559 [H8735] shall be established.
  4 H3068 The LORD H6466 [H8804] hath made H4617 all things for himself H7563 : yea, even the wicked H3117 for the day H7451 of evil.
  5 H1362 Every one that is proud H3820 in heart H8441 is an abomination H3068 to the LORD H3027 : though hand H3027 join in hand H5352 [H8735] , he shall not be unpunished.
  6 H2617 By mercy H571 and truth H5771 iniquity H3722 [H8792] is purged H3374 : and by the fear H3068 of the LORD H5493 [H8800] men depart H7451 from evil.
  7 H376 When a man's H1870 ways H7521 [H8800] please H3068 the LORD H341 [H8802] , he maketh even his enemies H7999 [H8686] to be at peace with him.
  8 H2896 Better H4592 is a little H6666 with righteousness H7230 than great H8393 revenues H4941 without right.
  9 H120 A man's H3820 heart H2803 [H8762] deviseth H1870 his way H3068 : but the LORD H3559 [H8686] directeth H6806 his steps.
  10 H7081 A divine sentence H8193 is in the lips H4428 of the king H6310 : his mouth H4603 [H8799] transgresseth H4941 not in judgment.
  11 H4941 A just H6425 weight H3976 and balance H3068 are the LORD'S H68 : all the weights H3599 of the bag H4639 are his work.
  12 H8441 It is an abomination H4428 to kings H6213 [H8800] to commit H7562 wickedness H3678 : for the throne H3559 [H8735] is established H6666 by righteousness.
  13 H6664 Righteous H8193 lips H7522 are the delight H4428 of kings H157 [H8799] ; and they love H1696 [H8802] him that speaketh H3477 right.
  14 H2534 The wrath H4428 of a king H4397 is as messengers H4194 of death H2450 : but a wise H376 man H3722 [H8762] will pacify it.
  15 H216 In the light H4428 of a king's H6440 countenance H2416 is life H7522 ; and his favour H5645 is as a cloud H4456 of the latter rain.
  16 H2896 How much better H7069 [H8800] is it to get H2451 wisdom H2742 than gold H7069 [H8800] ! and to get H998 understanding H977 [H8737] rather to be chosen H3701 than silver!
  17 H4546 The highway H3477 of the upright H5493 [H8800] is to depart H7451 from evil H5341 [H8802] : he that keepeth H1870 his way H8104 [H8802] preserveth H5315 his soul.
  18 H1347 Pride H6440 goeth before H7667 destruction H1363 , and an haughty H7307 spirit H6440 before H3783 a fall.
  19 H2896 Better H8217 it is to be of an humble H7307 spirit H6035 H6041 [H8675] with the lowly H2505 [H8763] , than to divide H7998 the spoil H1343 with the proud.
  20 H1697 He that handleth a matter H7919 [H8688] wisely H4672 [H8799] shall find H2896 good H982 [H8802] : and whoever trusteth H3068 in the LORD H835 , happy is he.
  21 H2450 The wise H3820 in heart H7121 [H8735] shall be called H995 [H8737] prudent H4986 : and the sweetness H8193 of the lips H3254 [H8686] increaseth H3948 learning.
  22 H7922 Understanding H4726 is a wellspring H2416 of life H1167 to him that hath H4148 it: but the instruction H191 of fools H200 is folly.
  23 H3820 The heart H2450 of the wise H7919 [H8686] teacheth H6310 his mouth H3254 [H8686] , and addeth H3948 learning H8193 to his lips.
  24 H5278 Pleasant H561 words H6688 H1706 are as an honeycomb H4966 , sweet H5315 to the soul H4832 , and health H6106 to the bones.
  25 H3426 There is H1870 a way H3477 that seemeth right H6440 to H376 a man H319 , but the end H1870 of it is the way H4194 of death.
  26 H5315 He H6001 that laboureth H5998 [H8804] laboureth H6310 for himself; for his mouth H404 [H8804] craveth it of him.
  27 H1100 An ungodly H376 man H3738 [H8802] diggeth up H7451 evil H8193 : and in his lips H6867 there is as a burning H784 fire.
  28 H8419 A perverse H376 man H7971 [H8762] soweth H4066 strife H5372 : and a whisperer H6504 [H8688] separateth H441 chief friends.
  29 H2555 A violent H376 man H6601 [H8762] enticeth H7453 his neighbour H3212 [H8689] , and leadeth H1870 him into the way H2896 that is not good.
  30 H6095 [H8802] He shutteth H5869 his eyes H2803 [H8800] to devise H8419 perverse things H7169 [H8802] : moving H8193 his lips H3615 0 he bringeth H7451 evil H3615 [H8765] to pass.
  31 H7872 The hoary head H5850 is a crown H8597 of glory H4672 [H8735] , if it is found H1870 in the way H6666 of righteousness.
  32 H750 He that is slow H639 to anger H2896 is better H1368 than the mighty H4910 [H8802] ; and he that ruleth H7307 his spirit H3920 [H8802] than he that taketh H5892 a city.
  33 H1486 The lot H2904 [H8714] is cast H2436 into the lap H4941 ; but its whole disposing H3068 is from the LORD.
