5 iTrust in the Lord with all your heart,
and jdo not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways kacknowledge him,
and he lwill make straight your paths.
7 mBe not wise in your own eyes;
nfear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
12 tThere is a way that seems right to a man,
3 oCommit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.
and blessed is he qwho trusts in the Lord.
2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only zin expressing his opinion.
4 The words of a man’s mouth are adeep waters;
the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
the righteous man runs into it and kis safe.
3 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.
