Proverbs 16:33 “The dice are thrown into the lap, but their every decision is from the Lord.”

We sometimes find dice casting in the Bible as a way of determining an outcome. The best example of what we have described here might be in the book of Jonah:

“The sailors said to one another, ‘Come on, let’s cast lots to find out whose fault it is that this disaster has overtaken us.’ So they cast lots, and Jonah was singled out.” (1:7)

They did it because they believed that divine forces would ordain the outcome. We should also understand that there is no chance! The way we explain it today is like this: what God doesn’t ordain, He allows. He controls and uses all things.
