Proverbs 16 ©
Various observations of moral virtues and their contrary vices.
THE 1preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
oRighteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
The pwrath of a king is as messengers of death: qbut a wise man will pacify it.
The zwise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
He jshutteth his eyes to devise *froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
