Proverbs 16:1–2; Proverbs 16:4; Proverbs 16:7; Proverbs 16:9; Proverbs 16:11; Proverbs 16:33
16 The plans of the heart belong to man,
but lthe answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 mAll the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
4 pThe Lord has made everything for its purpose,
even qthe wicked for the day of trouble.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,
whe makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
9 yThe heart of man plans his way,
but zthe Lord establishes his steps.
11 bA just balance and scales are the Lord’s;
all the weights in the bag are his work.
33 kThe lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is lfrom the Lord.
