Gleanings from Proverbs 16–Part I

All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, but the Lord weighs the motives. Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.

Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; assuredly, he will not be unpunished. By lovingkindness and truth iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one keeps away from evil.

When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Better is a little with righteousness than great income with injustice. The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, for a throne is established on righteousness.

How much better it is to get wisdom than gold, and to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.
