Proverbs 16:7-9 American Standard Version (ASV)

When a man’s ways please Jehovah,
He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Better is a little, with righteousness,
Than great revenues with injustice.
A man’s heart deviseth his way;
But Jehovah directeth his steps.

Proverbs 16:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way,
    he causes their enemies to make peace with them.

Better a little with righteousness
    than much gain with injustice.

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps.
