20  So you will walk in the way of the good

and keep to the paths of the righteous.

27  rDo not withhold good from those to whom it is due,1

when it is in your power to do it.

eThe integrity of the upright guides them,

fbut the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.

hThe righteousness of the upright delivers them,

but the treacherous jare taken captive by their lust.

17  wA man who is kind benefits himself,

but a cruel man hurts himself.

27  Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,1

but evil comes to rhim who searches for it.

30  The fruit of the righteous is wa tree of life,

and whoever xcaptures souls is wise.

A good man bobtains favor from the Lord,

but a man of evil devices he condemns.

22  zA good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,

but athe sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.

14  The backslider in heart will be xfilled with the fruit of his ways,

and ya good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.

19  dThe evil bow down before the good,

the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

22  Do they not go astray who idevise evil?

Those who devise good meet1 jsteadfast love and faithfulness.

gThe eyes of the Lord are in every place,

keeping watch on the evil and the good.

13  If anyone ereturns evil for good,

fevil will not depart from his house.

26  vTo impose a fine on a righteous man is not good,

nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.

lA king who sits on the throne of judgment

mwinnows all evil with his eyes.

10  Whoever misleads the upright into an evil way

rwill fall into his own pit,

but the blameless swill have a goodly inheritance.

21  To show kpartiality is not good,

but for la piece of bread a man will do wrong.

The Woman Who Fears the Lord

10  1 uAn excellent wife who can find?

She is far more precious than vjewels.

11  The heart of her husband trusts in her,

and he will have no lack of gain.

12  She does him good, and not harm,

all the days of her life.
