My son, let not them depart from thine eyes:keep sound wisdom and discretion:22
So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.23
Then shalt thou walk in thy waysafely, and thy foot shall not stumble .
When thou liest down , thou shalt not be afraid : yea, thou shalt lie down , and thy sleep shall be sweet .
Be not afraid of suddenfear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh .
For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.27Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28Say not unto thy neighbour,Go , and come again , and to morrow I will give ; when thou hast it by thee.
29Devisea not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwellethsecurely by thee.
30Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.31Envy thou not the oppressor ,b and choose none of his ways.32
For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.33
The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.34
Surely he scorneth the scorners : but he givethgrace unto the lowly .
The wise shall inheritglory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
