161 To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.
161 The preparations preparations: or, disposings of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.
161 The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
161 Mortals make elaborate plans, but God has the last word.
161 The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
161 We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer.
(Read Proverbs 16:1)
The renewing grace of God alone prepares the heart for every good work. This teaches us that we are not sufficient of ourselves to think or speak any thing wise and good.
