Proverbs 4:10-19 - The Right Path
10 Hear, O my son, and receive my words, and the years of thy life shall be multiplied. 11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have caused thee to walk in right paths. 12 When thou goest in these paths, thy steps shall not be hindered; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. 13 Take fast hold of chastening; do not let go; keep this; for it is thy life. 14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. 16 For they do not sleep, unless they have done evil; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause someone to fall. 17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. 18 But the path of the just is as the light of the morning star, that shines more and more until the day is perfect. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness; they do not know in what they stumble.
