Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.
Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids;
Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you with her eyelids.
In the way of righteousness is life, And in its pathway there is no death.
Let a man meet a bear robbed of her cubs, Rather than a fool in his folly.
Do not be envious of evil men, Nor desire to be with them;
A man who is laden with the guilt of human blood Will be a fugitive until death; let no one support him.
Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion,
