Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 16

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 The preparations of the heart are man's, but the answer of the tongue is from HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but HaShem weigheth the spirits.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Commit thy works unto HaShem, and thy thoughts shall be established.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 HaShem hath made every things for His own purpose, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to HaShem; my hand upon it! he shall not be unpunished.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 By mercy and truth iniquity is expiated; and by the fear of HaShem men depart from evil.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 When a man's ways please HaShem, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 A man's heart deviseth his way; but HaShem directeth his steps.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king; his mouth trespasseth not in judgment.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 A just balance and scales are HaShem'S; all the weights of the bag are His work.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death; but a wise man will pacify it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with the humble, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; and whoso trusteth in HaShem, happy is he.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 The wise in heart is called a man of discernment; and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Understanding is a fountain of life unto him that hath it; but folly is the chastisement of fools.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 The hunger of the labouring man laboureth for him; for his mouth compelleth him.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil, and in his lips there is as a burning fire.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 A froward man soweth strife; and a whisperer separateth familiar friends.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 A man of violence enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into a way that is not good.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 He that shutteth his eyes, it is to devise froward things; he that biteth his lips bringeth evil to pass.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 The hoary head is a crown of glory, it is found in the way of righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of HaShem.
