Proverbs 15:22; 16:1-4,9,33; 19:21; 21:5,30,31; 24:27; 27:1
Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. … The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. … The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. … The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD. … Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand. … The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. … No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel can avail against the LORD. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD. … Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house. … Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
