« Proverbs 16:3 »

Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established.Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice.Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.
A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!
He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.
