The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.

  

 Proverbs verbs 16:1-7 English Standard Version (ESV)

16 The 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 pure in his own eyes,

    but the Lord weighs the spirit.

3 Commit your work to the Lord,

    and your plans will be established.

4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose,

    even the wicked for the day of trouble.

5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;

    be assured, he will not go unpunished.

6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,

    and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.

7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,

    he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
