iTrust in the Lord with all your heart,

and jdo not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways kacknowledge him,

and he lwill make straight your paths.

mBe not wise in your own eyes;

nfear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

It will be ohealing to your flesh1

and prefreshment2 to your bones.


12  tThere is a way that seems right to a man,

but uits end is the way to death.1


oCommit your work to the Lord,

and your plans will be established.


20  Whoever gives thought to the word1 pwill discover good,

and blessed is he qwho trusts in the Lord.


A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,

but only zin expressing his opinion.


The words of a man's mouth are adeep waters;

the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.


10  iThe name of the Lord is ja strong tower;

the righteous man runs into it and kis safe.


When a man's folly dbrings his way to ruin,

his heart erages against the Lord.


24  A man's nsteps are from the Lord;

how then can man understand his way?


22  bA wise man scales the city of the mighty

and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.


12  Do you see a man who is jwise in his own eyes?

kThere is more hope for a fool than for him.


25  A greedy man sstirs up strife,

but the one who trusts in the Lord will tbe enriched.

26  Whoever utrusts in his own mind is a fool,

but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.


25  iThe fear of man lays a snare,

but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.
