The path of the righteous1 is like the morning sun,2 shining ever brighter till the full light of day.319
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;4 they do not know what makes them stumble.520
My son,6 pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words.721
Do not let them out of your sight,8 keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them and health to one's whole body.923
Above all else, guard10 your heart, for everything you do flows from it.1124
Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes12 look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to thea paths for your feet13 and be steadfast in all your ways.
Do not turn to the right or the left;14 keep your foot from evil.
