1Do not put your confidence in your money or say, 'With this I am self-sufficient.' 2Do not be led by your appetites and energy to follow the passions of your heart. 3And do not say, 'Who has authority over me?' for the Lord will certainly give you your deserts. 4Do not say, 'I have sinned, but what harm has befal en me?' for the Lord's forbearance is long. 5Do not be so sure of forgiveness that you add sin to sin. 6And do not say, 'His compassion is great, he will forgive me my many sins'; for with him are both mercyand retribution, and his anger does not pass from sinners. 7Do not delay your return to the Lord, do not put it off day after day; for suddenly the Lord's wrath wilblaze out, and on the day of punishment you wil be utterly destroyed. 8Do not set your heart on il -gotten gains, they wil be of no use to you on the day of disaster. 9Do not winnow in every wind, or walk along every by-way (as the double-talking sinner does). 10Be steady in your convictions, and be a person of your word. 11Be quick to listen, and deliberate in giving an answer. 12If you understand the matter, give your neighbour an answer, if not, keep your hand over your mouth. 13Both honour and disgrace come from talking, the tongue is its owner's downfal . 14Do not get a name for scandal-mongering, do not set traps with your tongue; for as shame lies in storefor the thief, so harsh condemnation awaits the deceitful. 15Avoid offences in great as in smal matters, and do not exchange friendship for enmity,
