to deliver thee from the evil way, from the man that speaks perversion,
Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have observed the ways of the violent.
I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with hypocrites.
Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to do works with ungodliness with the men that work iniquity, and let me not eat of their dainties.
My son, if sinners entice thee, do not consent.
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride, arrogancy, the evil way, and the perverse mouth, do I hate.
He that walks with wise men shall be wise, but the companion of fools shall be destroyed.
The perverse man sows strife, and the tale bearer separates princes.
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips pronounce lies; your tongue speaks evil.
Also from among your own selves, men shall arise, speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after themselves.
