Race Not to the Swift, Nor Battle to the Strong

So, is life driven by a roll of the dice or divine providence? What about predestination or the foreknowledge of God? Isn’t “good luck” the intersection of preparation and opportunity? What about 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration? I’ve seen this quote many times and still scratch my head.

“The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.”

Is it in the Bible, or not?
