    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked


    Proverbs Chapter 16 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward


    Proverbs 16
    King James Version

    1
    The preparations of the heart in man,
    and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.​

    2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
    but the Lord weigheth the spirits.​

    3 Commit thy works unto the Lord,
    and thy thoughts shall be established.​

    4 The Lord hath made all things for himself:
    yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.​

    5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord:
    though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.​

    6 By mercy and truth
    iniquity is purged:
    and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.​

    7 When a man's ways please the Lord,
    he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.​

    8 Better is a little with righteousness
    than great revenues without right.​

    9 A man's heart deviseth his way:
    but the Lord directeth his steps.​

    10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king:
    his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.​
    11 A just weight and balance are the Lord's:
    all the weights of the bag are his work.​
    12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness:
    for the throne is established by righteousness.​
    13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings;
    and they love him that speaketh right.​
    14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death:
    but a wise man will pacify it.​
    15 In the light of the king's countenance is life;
    and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.​

    16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold!
    and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!​

    17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil:
    he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.​

    18 Pride goeth before destruction,
    and an haughty spirit before a fall.​
    19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly,
    than to divide the spoil with the proud.​

    20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good:
    and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.​

    21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent:
    and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.​

    22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it:
    but the instruction of fools is folly.​

    23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth,
    and addeth learning to his lips.​

    24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,
    sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.​

    25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man,
    but the end thereof are the ways of death.​

    26 He that laboureth laboureth for himself;
    for his mouth craveth it of him.​

    27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil:
    and in his lips there is as a burning fire.​
    28 A froward man soweth strife:
    and a whisperer separateth chief friends.​
    29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour,
    and leadeth him into the way that is not good.​
    30 He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things:
    moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.​

    31 The hoary head is a crown of glory,
    if it be found in the way of righteousness.​

    32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty;
    and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.​

    33 The lot is cast into the lap;
    but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.
