Proverbs 16:7

When

a man’s ways please Yahweh, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Proverbs 16:7

Context

Proverbs 16 [1.] The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from Yahweh.
All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
but Yahweh weighs the motives.
Commit your deeds to Yahweh,
and your plans shall succeed.
Yahweh has made everything for its own end—
yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Proverbs 16 [5.] Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to Yahweh:
they shall certainly not be unpunished.
By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for.
By the fear of Yahweh men depart from evil.
When a man’s ways please Yahweh,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Better is a little with righteousness,
than great revenues with injustice.
A man’s heart plans his course,
but Yahweh directs his steps.

Proverbs 16 [10.] Inspired judgments are on the lips of the king.
He shall not betray his mouth.
Honest balances and scales are Yahweh’s;
all the weights in the bag are his work.
It is an abomination for kings to do wrong,
for the throne is established by righteousness.
Righteous lips are the delight of kings.
They value one who speaks the truth.
The king’s wrath is a messenger of death,
but a wise man will pacify it.
