Proverbs 16:1-9, 18-19

1. To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue.
2. All a man's ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD.
3. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
4. The LORD works out everything for his own ends-- even the wicked for a day of disaster.
5. The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
6. Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.
7. When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.
8. Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.
9. In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

18. Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
19. Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

I Peter 5:5-7

5. Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
6. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
