I guide1 you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.212
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.313
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.414
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.515
Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.
For they cannot sleep till they do evil;6 they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall.
They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.718
The path of the righteous8 is like the first gleam of dawn,9 shining ever brighter till the full light of day.1019
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;11 they do not know what makes them stumble.1220
My son,13 pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.1421
Do not let them out of your sight,15 keep them within your heart;
