12 What man is he that desireth life, [and] loveth days, that he may see good? 12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile; 13 keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of Jehovah are upon the righteous, and his ears are toward their cry; 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;

17 [The righteous] cry, and Jehovah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 Jehovah is nigh to those that are of a broken heart, and saveth them that are of a contrite spirit. 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

21 Evil shall destroy the wicked; and they that hate the righteous shall bear their guilt. 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
