Lest the LORDsee it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
19Freta not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;20
For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candleb of the wicked shall be put out .
My son,fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change :
For their calamity shall risesuddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?23
These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.24
He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the peoplecurse , nations shall abhor him:
But to them that rebuke him shall be delight , and a goodcblessing shall come upon them.
Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a rightanswer.27Prepare thy workwithout, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwardsbuild thine house.28
Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.
