Proverbs 4:20-27, What Do I Do?


20My son, give attention to my words;

Incline your ear to my sayings.

21Do not let them depart from your sight;

Keep them in the midst of your heart.

22For they are life to those who find them

And health to all their body.

23Watch over your heart with all diligence,

For from it flow the springs of life.

24Put away from you a deceitful mouth

And put devious speech far from you.

25Let your eyes look directly ahead

And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.

26Watch the path of your feet

And all your ways will be established.

27Do not turn to the right nor to the left;

Turn your foot from evil.
