20 My son, 1give attention to my words; 2Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 3Do not let them depart from your sight; 4Keep them in the midst of your heart.
22 For they are 5life to those who find them And 6health to all their body.
23 Watch over your heart with all diligence, For 7from it flow the springs of life.
24 Put away from you a 8deceitful mouth And 9put devious speech far from you.
25 Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.
26 10Watch the path of your feet And all your 11ways will be established.
27 12Do not turn to the right nor to the left; 13Turn your foot from evil.
