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.

29  uThe way of the Lord is a stronghold to the blameless,

but destruction to evildoers.

When the wicked dies, his khope will perish,

and lthe expectation of wealth1 perishes too.

22  oA joyful heart is good medicine,

but a crushed spirit pdries up the bones.

10  iThe name of the Lord is ja strong tower;

the righteous man runs into it and kis safe.

11  lA rich man’s wealth is his strong city,

and like a high wall in his imagination.

29  The glory of young men is their strength,

but wthe splendor of old men is their gray hair.

22  bA wise man scales the city of the mighty

and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.

By ywisdom a house is built,

and by understanding it is established;

aA wise man is full of strength,

and a man of knowledge enhances his might,

10  If you ifaint in the day of adversity,

your strength is small.

25  xthe ants are a people not strong,

yet they provide their food in the summer;

17  She zdresses herself1 with strength

and makes her arms strong.

25  iStrength and dignity are her clothing,

and she laughs at the time to come.
