Then you will go on your way in safety,1 and your foot will not stumble;224
when you lie down,3 you will not be afraid;4 when you lie down, your sleep5 will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the LORD will be your confidence6 and will keep your foot7 from being snared.827
Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.
Do not say to your neighbor, "Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow"-- when you now have it with you.929
Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you.1030
Do not accuse a man for no reason-- when he has done you no harm.
Do not envy11 a violent man or choose any of his ways,
for the LORD detests a perverse man12 but takes the upright into his confidence.1333
The LORD's curse14 is on the house of the wicked,15 but he blesses the home of the righteous.16
