To deliver you from the way of evil, From the man who speaks perverse things;
To deliver you from the strange woman, From the adulteress who flatters with her words;
Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself; Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor, Go, humble yourself, and importune your neighbor.
Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hunter's hand And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
Ill-gotten gains do not profit, But righteousness delivers from death.
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death.
The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the treacherous will be caught by their own greed.
The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.
A truthful witness saves lives, But he who utters lies is treacherous.
A man of great anger will bear the penalty, For if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.
You shall strike him with the rod and rescue his soul from Sheol
Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
