    King James Bible - Proverbs 16:33

    The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

    World English Bible

    The lot is cast into the
    lap, but its every decision is from Yahweh.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 16:33

    Lots are cast into the
    lap, but they are disposed of by the Lord.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    The lot is cast into the
    lap: but the whole disposing of it is from the LORD.

    Original Hebrew

    בחיק
    2436 יוטל 2904 את 853 הגורל 1486 ומיהוה 3068 כל 3605 משׁפטו׃ 4941

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:33

    ¶ La suerte se echa en el regazo; mas del SEÑOR es el juicio de ella.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 16:33

    Verse 33. The lot is cast into the
    lap ] On the lot, see the note on Num. xxvi. 55. How far it may be proper now to put difficult matters to the lot, after earnest prayer and supplication, I cannot say. Formerly, it was both lawful and efficient; for after it was solemnly cast, the decision was taken as coming immediately from the Lord. It is still practiced, and its use is allowed even by writers on civil law. But those who need most to have recourse to the lot are those who have not piety to pray nor faith to trust to God for a positive decision. The lot should never be resorted to in indifferent matters; they should be those of the greatest importance, in which it appears impossible for human prudence or foresight to determine.

    In such cases the lot is an appeal to God, and he disposes of it according to his goodness, mercy, and truth. The result, therefore, cannot be fortuitous.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 33. The lot is cast into the lap , etc.] Of a man’s garment, or into his bosom, or into a hat, cap, urn, or whatsoever he has in his lap, and from whence it is taken out; which used to be done in choosing officers, civil or ecclesiastical; in dividing inheritances, and determining doubtful cases; and making up differences, and putting an end to strife and contentions, which otherwise could not be done: and this ought not to be used in trivial cases, or to gratify curiosity, or for the sake of gain, or rashly and superstitiously; but seriously and religiously, with prayer, and in faith, and with a view to the divine direction, and submission to it; for a lot has the nature of an oath, and is an appeal to the omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent Being; but the whole disposing thereof [is] of the Lord ; or “the judgment” of it; the judgment that is to be made by it concerning persons or things; it being so directed and ordered by him as to fall upon the person it should; or to make known the thing in doubt and debate according to his will, in which all parties concerned should acquiesce. This is to be ascribed, not to blind chance and fortune, to the influence of the stars, or to any invisible created being, angel or devil, but to the Lord only; there is no such thing as chance, or events by chance; those events which seem most fortuitous or contingent are all disposed, ordered, and governed, by the sovereign will of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 33 - All the disposal of Providence concerning our affairs, we must loo upon to be the determining what we referred to
    God; and we must be reconciled to them accordingly. Blessed are those that give themselve up to the will of God; for he knows what is good for them __________________________________________________________________
