5 Thorns, snares, in the way of the perverse one: he watching his soul shall be far from them.
6 Straiten to a youth upon the mouth of his way, also when he shall grow old he will not depart from it.
12 The eyes of Jehovah guarded knowledge, and he will overthrow the words of him transgressing.
15 Folly being bound in the heart of a youth; the rod of correction shall remove it far off from him.
17 Incline thine ear and hear the words of the wise, and thou shalt set thy heart to my knowledge. 18 For pleasant things if thou shalt watch them in thy belly; they shall be prepared together for thy lips. 19 For thy trust to be in Jehovah, I caused thee to know to-day, thee also. 20 Did I not write to thee three days ago in counsels and knowledge? 21 To cause thee to know the truth of the words of truth; to turn back the words of truth to those sending thee?
22 Thou shalt not strip the poor because he is poor: and thou shalt not crush the humble in the gate. 23 For Jehovah will contend their contention, and rob the soul to those robbing them.
24 Thou shalt not be companion of the possessor of anger, and with the man of wrath thou shalt not go: 25 Lest thou shalt learn his ways and take a snare to thy soul.
26 Thou shalt not be with those striking the hand with those pledging for debts. 27 If not to thee to requite, why shall he take thy bed from under thee?
