To receive instruction in wise behavior, Righteousness, justice and equity; 12To deliver you from the way of evil,            From the man who speaks perverse things; 13From those who leave the paths of uprightness            To walk in the ways of darkness; 14Who delight in doing evil            And rejoice in the perversity of evil; 15Whose paths are crooked,            And who are devious in their ways; 16To deliver you from the strange woman,            From the adulteress who flatters with her words; 17That leaves the companion of her youth            And forgets the covenant of her God; 18For her house sinks down to death            And her tracks lead to the dead; 19None who go to her return again,            Nor do they reach the paths of life.
