Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.114
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.215
Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.
For they cannot sleep till they do evil;3 they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall.
They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.418
The path of the righteous5 is like the first gleam of dawn,6 shining ever brighter till the full light of day.719
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;8 they do not know what makes them stumble.920
My son,10 pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.1121
Do not let them out of your sight,12 keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body.1323
Above all else, guard14 your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.15
