Proverbs 28:4; Proverbs 28:7; Proverbs 28:9; Proverbs 29:18

Those who forsake the law gpraise the wicked,

but those who keep the law hstrive against them.


The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding,

but ma companion of gluttons shames his father.


If one turns away his ear from hearing the law,

even his qprayer is an abomination.


18  Where zthere is no prophetic vision the people acast off restraint,1

but blessed is he who bkeeps the law.
