My ways are in your hands, Lips shall speak of mysterious deeds. Utter words of lovingkindness, Praise, to enthroned majesty. When it seems like worldly randomness, You have arranged events for your glory. Taught me by thy works, Thy statutes frame my meditations.
This chapter is graced by an abundance of proverbs that refer to the Lord. I like to call chapter sixteen, The Lord’s chapter.
A unique element appears in this chapter. The word “prayer” only occurs three times in Proverbs and two of those times is in this chapter. Guess what section it falls in. Yep. Speech.
