1Do not be jealous of the wife you love, do not teach her lessons in how to harm you. 2Do not put yourself in a woman's hands or she may come to dominate you completely. 3Do not keep company with a prostitute, in case you get entangled in her snares. 4Do not dal y with a singing girl, in case you get caught by her wiles. 5Do not stare at a pretty girl, in case you and she incur the same punishment. 6Do not give your heart to whores, or you wil ruin your inheritance. 7Keep your eyes to yourself in the streets of a town, do not prowl about its unfrequented quarters. 8Turn your eyes away from a handsome woman, do not stare at a beauty belonging to someone else.Because of a woman's beauty, many have been undone; this makes passion flare up like a fire. 9Never sit down with a married woman, or sit at table with her drinking wine, in case you let your heartsuccumb to her and you lose al self-control and slide to disaster. 10Do not desert an old friend; the new one wil not be his match. New friend, new wine; when it grows old,you drink it with pleasure. 11Do not envy the sinner his success; you do not know how that wil end. 12Do not take pleasure in what pleases the godless; remember they wil not go unpunished here below. 13Keep your distance from the man who has the power to put to death, and you wil not be haunted by thefear of dying. If you do approach him, make no false move, or he may take your life. Realise that you aretreading among trip-lines, that you are strolling on the battlements. 14Cultivate your neighbours to the best of your ability, and consult with the wise. 15For conversation seek the intelligent, let al your discussions bear on the law of the Most High. 16Have the upright for your table companions, and let your pride be in fearing the Lord. 17Work from skilled hands will earn its praise, but a leader of the people must be skilful in words. 18A chatterbox is a terror to his town, a loose talker is detested.
