And bthe answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.
And thy thoughts shall be established.
4 gThe Lord hath made all things for himself:
Yea, heven the wicked for the day of evil.
And by the fear of the Lord men odepart from evil.
He pmaketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 qBetter is a little with righteousness
Than great revenues rwithout right.
9 A sman’s heart deviseth his way:
But tthe Lord directeth his steps.
His mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
For zthe throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are athe delight of kings;
And they love him that speaketh right.
14 bThe wrath of a king is as messengers of death:
But a wise man will cpacify it.
15 dIn the light of the king’s countenance is life;
And to get understanding hrather to be chosen than silver!
He that kkeepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18 lPride goeth before destruction,
And an haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be mof an humble spirit with the lowly,
Than nto divide the spoil with the proud.
And pwhoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
And the sweetness of the lips qincreaseth learning.
But the instruction of fools is folly.
And qaddeth learning to his lips.
25 zThere is a way that seemeth right unto a man,
But the end thereof are the ways of death.
27 †An ungodly man diggeth up evil:
And in his lips there is as a cburning fire.
And leadeth him into the way that is not good.
30 He shutteth his eyes to devise kfroward things:
lMoving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
If it be found in the way of righteousness.
And he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
But the whole disposing thereof is sof the Lord.
