My son, don't let them slip from your eyes; hold on to sound judgment and discretion.
They will be life for your whole being, and an ornament for your neck.
Then you will walk safely on your path, and your foot won't stumble.
If you lie down, you won't be terrified. When you lie down, your sleep will be pleasant.
Don't fear sudden terror or the ruin that comes to the wicked.
The LORD will be your confidence; he will guard your feet from being snared.
Don't withhold good from someone who deserves it, when it is in your power to do so.
Don't say to your neighbor, "Go and come back; I'll give it to you tomorrow," when you have it.
Don't plan to harm your neighbor who trusts and lives near you.
Don't accuse anyone without reason, when they haven't harmed you.
Don't envy violent people or choose any of their ways.
Devious people are detestable to the LORD, but the virtuous are his close friends.
The LORD's curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.
He mocks mockers, but he shows favor to the humble.
The wise gain respect, but fools receive shame.
