Proverbs 4:10-19 - The Right Path

10 Listen, my child, take my sayings, and [the] years of your life shall be great. 11 In the way of wisdom I have instructed you; I have led you in the path of uprightness. 12 {When you walk}, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble. 13 Seize the instruction! Do not let go! Guard her, for she is your life. 14 In the path of the wicked do not go; do not walk in the way of those who do evil. 15 Avoid it; do not transgress it; turn away from it and pass by. 16 For they will not sleep if they have not done wrong, and they are robbed of their sleep if they do not cause stumbling. 17 For they ate the bread of wickedness, and they drank the wine of violence. 18 But the path of the righteous ones [is] like the light of dawn, leading and shining until the day {is full}. 19 The way of the wicked ones [is] like deep darkness; they do not know what they stumble over.
