for the LORD will be your confidence1 and will keep your foot2 from being snared.327
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.429
Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you.530
Do not accuse a man for no reason-- when he has done you no harm.
Do not envy6 a violent man or choose any of his ways,
for the LORD detests a perverse man7 but takes the upright into his confidence.833
The LORD's curse9 is on the house of the wicked,10 but he blesses the home of the righteous.1134
He mocks12 proud mockers13 but gives grace to the humble.1435
The wise inherit honor, but fools he holds up to shame.
