New Living Translation
16We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer.H4633H3820H120H4617H3956H3068 2People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.H1870H376H2134H5869H3068H8505H7307 3Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.H1556H4639H3068H4284H3559 4The Lord has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster.H3068H6466H4617H7563H3117H7451 5The Lord detests the proud; they will surely be punished.H1362H3820H8441H3068H3027H3027H5352 6Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin. By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.H2617H571H5771H3722H3374H3068H5493H7451 7When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them.H376H1870H7521H3068H341H7999 8Better to have little, with godliness, than to be rich and dishonest.H2896H4592H6666H7230H8393H4941 9We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.H120H3820H2803H1870H3068H3559H6806 10The king speaks with divine wisdom; he must never judge unfairly.H7081H8193H4428H6310H4603H4941 11The Lord demands accurate scales and balances; he sets the standards for fairness.H4941H6425H3976H3068H68H3599H4639 12A king detests wrongdoing, for his rule is built on justice.H8441H4428H6213H7562H3678H3559H6666 13The king is pleased with words from righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly.H6664H8193H7522H4428H157H1696H3477 14The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise will try to appease it.H2534H4428H4397H4194H2450H376H3722 15When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a spring rain.H216H4428H6440H2416H7522H5645H4456 16How much better to get wisdom than gold, and good judgment than silver!H2896H7069H2451H2742H7069H998H977H3701 17The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe.H4546H3477H5493H7451H5341H1870H8104H5315 18Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.H1347H6440H7667H1363H7307H6440H3783 19Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud.H2896H8217H7307H6035H6041H2505H7998H1343 20Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful.H1697H7919H4672H2896H982H3068H835 21The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant words are persuasive.H2450H3820H7121H995H4986H8193H3254H3948 22Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools.H7922H4726H2416H1167H4148H191H200 23From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive.H3820H2450H7919H6310H3254H3948H8193 24Kind words are like honey - sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.H5278H561H6688H1706H4966H5315H4832H6106 25There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.H3426H1870H3477H6440H376H319H1870H4194 26It is good for workers to have an appetite; an empty stomach drives them on.H5315H6001H5998H6310H404 27Scoundrels create trouble; their words are a destructive blaze.H1100H376H3738H7451H8193H6867H784 28A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.H8419H376H7971H4066H5372H6504H441 29Violent people mislead their companions, leading them down a harmful path.H2555H376H6601H7453H3212H1870H2896 30With narrowed eyes, people plot evil; with a smirk, they plan their mischief.H6095H5869H2803H8419H7169H8193H3615H7451H3615 31Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life.H7872H5850H8597H4672H1870H6666 32Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self-control than to conquer a city.H750H639H2896H1368H4910H7307H3920H5892 33We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall.H1486H2904H2436H4941H3068
