Proverbs 16:1-33

1. People go about making their plans, but the Eternal has the final word.
Even when you think you have good intentions, He knows your real motives.
Whatever you do, do it as service to Him, and He will guarantee your success.
The Eternal made everything for a reason …
5 …
The penalty of sin is removed by love and loyalty; and by devotion to the Eternal, evil is avoided.
When people make good choices, He is pleased; He even causes their enemies to live peacefully near them.
Better to have little and stand for what is right …
People do their best making plans for their lives, but the Eternal guides each step.
10 The king makes a decision under divine inspiration, but he must never render an unfair judgment.
11 The Eternal requires that business be conducted honestly; He wants fairness in all your dealings.
12 When kings commit evil, it is despicable, because their thrones should be built on justice.
13 Kings admire those who tell the truth; they adore those who set the record straight.
14 A king’s rage signals that people will die, but whoever is wise will pacify him.
15 If a king is smiling brightly, life will be granted; his favor is like a cloud swelled with the first spring rain.
16 How much better it is to receive wisdom than the riches of gold and to gain understanding over some silver prize!
17 The highway of the just bypasses evil; those who watch where they’re going protect their lives from sin.
18 …
19 It is better to be humble and live among the poor, …
20 Those devoted to instruction will prosper in goodnessthose who trust in the Eternal will experience His favor.
21 The wise at heart have a reputation for understanding; pleasant words make the lips more persuasive.
22 Understanding for those who have it is a spring of life, but it is pointless to try and instruct a fool.
23 From a wise heart flow careful words; wise words make the lips more persuasive.
24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb: they drip sweet food for life and bring health to the body.
25 Before every person lies a road that seems to be right, but at the end of that road death and destruction wait.
26 People work to stay alive, pressed daily by their need to eat.
27 …
28 …
29 …
30 Body language can expose a person’s intentions: …
31 Gray hair is a crown of honor, earned by living the right kind of life.
32 It is better to be a patient man than a mighty warrior, better to be someone who controls his temper than someone who conquers a city.
33 We may try to control the roll of the dice,but actually, the Eternal decides what they will determine.
