Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Do not devise harm against your neighbor, While he lives securely beside you.
Therefore his calamity will come suddenly ; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.
Bind them continually on your heart ; Tie them around your neck.
When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you.
"I was due to offer peace offerings ; Today I have paid my vows.
"Therefore I have come out to meet you, To seek your presence earnestly, and I have found you.
On top of the heights beside the way, Where the paths meet, she takes her stand ;
A worthless man digs up evil, While his words are like scorching fire.
The foolishness of man ruins his way, And his heart rages against the LORD.
A wise king winnows the wicked, And drives the threshing wheel over them.
The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD ; He turns it wherever He wishes.
Those who linger long over wine, Those who go to taste mixed wine.
Like a roaring lion and a rushing bear Is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
To show partiality is not good, Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.
