« Proverbs 15 | Proverbs 16 | Proverbs 17 »
16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man,but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3 Commit your work to the Lord,and your plans will be established.
4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose,even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;be assured, he will not go unpunished.
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousnessthan great revenues with injustice.
9 The heart of man plans his way,but the Lord establishes his steps.
10 An oracle is on the lips of a king;his mouth does not sin in judgment.
11 A just balance and scales are the Lord’s;all the weights in the bag are his work.
12 It is an abomination to kings to do evil,for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king,and he loves him who speaks what is right.
14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,and a wise man will appease it.
15 In the light of a king’s face there is life,and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold!To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
17 The highway of the upright turns aside from evil;whoever guards his way preserves his life.
18 Pride goes before destruction,and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poorthan to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
21 The wise of heart is called discerning,and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise makes his speech judiciousand adds persuasiveness to his lips.
24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb,sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
25 There is a way that seems right to a man,but its end is the way to death.
26 A worker’s appetite works for him;his mouth urges him on.
27 A worthless man plots evil,and his speech is like a scorching fire.
28 A dishonest man spreads strife,and a whisperer separates close friends.
29 A man of violence entices his neighborand leads him in a way that is not good.
30 Whoever winks his eyes plans dishonest things;he who purses his lips brings evil to pass.
31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;it is gained in a righteous life.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
33 The lot is cast into the lap,but its every decision is from the Lord.
« Galatians 4 | Galatians 5 | Galatians 6 »
Christ Has Set Us Free 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
2 Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.
3 I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.
7 You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view, and the one who is troubling you will bear the penalty, whoever he is.
11 But if I, brothers, still preach circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been removed.
12 I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
Keep in Step with the Spirit16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,
21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
