English Standard Version (ESV)

Proverbs 16

16:1   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.
  Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the LORD;
    be assured, he will not go unpunished.
  By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
    and by the fear of the LORD one turns away from evil.
  When a man’s ways please the LORD,
    he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
  Better is a little with righteousness
    than great revenues with injustice.
  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 poor
    than 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 judicious
    and 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 neighbor
    and 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.

Luke 24:35–43

35 Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread.

36 As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. 38 And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate before them.

Mark 16:12–13

12 After these things he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. 13 And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them.

King James Version (KJV)

Proverbs 16:1-33

1The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.2All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.3Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.4The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.5Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.6By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.7When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.8Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.9A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.10A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.11A just weight and balance are the Lord's: all the weights of the bag are his work.12It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.13Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.14The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.15In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.16How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!17The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.18Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.19Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.20He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.21The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.22Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.23The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.24Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.25There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.26He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.27An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.28A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.29A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.30He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.31The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.32He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.33The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

Luke 24:35-43

35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.40And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet.41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.43And he took it, and did eat before them.

Mark 16:12-13

12After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.13And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
