New American Standard Bible
Contrast the Upright and the Wicked
16 The (A)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 clean in his own sight,
But the (B)Lord weighs the [a]motives.
3 [b](C)Commit your works to the Lord
And your plans will be established.
4 The Lord (D)has made everything for [c]its own purpose,
Even the (E)wicked for the day of evil.
