Proverbs 4:18-27 NIRV

18 The path of those who do what is right is like the first gleam of dawn. It shines brighter and brighter until the full light of day.
19 But the way of those who do what is wrong is like deep darkness. They don't know what makes them trip and fall.
20 My son, pay attention to what I say. Listen closely to my words.
21 Don't let them out of your sight. Keep them in your heart.
22 They are life to those who find them. They are health to your whole body.
23 Above everything else, guard your heart. It is where your life comes from.
24 Don't speak with twisted words. Keep evil talk away from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead. Keep looking right in front of you.
26 Make level paths for your feet to walk on. Only go on ways that are firm.
27 Don't turn to the right or left. Keep your feet from the path of evil.
