When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
– Proverbs 16:7
This proverb is in the group themed on God’s sovereignty and it’s best to take it that way. In this light, the proverb encourages trust in the Lord rather than being moved by fear of man (Proverbs 21:1; 29:25). On another level, the proverb presents a general truism because walking in wisdom means a man reconciles broken relationships and doesn’t unnecessarily stir up strife (Proverbs 15:1, 4, 18; 25:21-22).
