15 1 Fora he that feareth the Lord doeth this,
And he that taketh hold of the Law findeth her.
And as a youthful wife will she receive him;
And will give him the waters of knowledgeb to drink.
Nor shall he that trusteth in her be ashamed;
And will open his mouth in the midst of the assembly.
And she will make him inherit an everlasting name.
And the arrogant shall not look upon her.
And liars do not think of her.
9 Praised is not seemly in the mouth of the wicked,
(c) 15:11–20. On Free-will
For that which He hateth made He not.
Stretch forth thine hand unto that which thou desirest.
That which he desireth shall be given to him.
And He knoweth every deed of man.
Nor gave strength to men of liesm.
(d) 16:1–5. The Curse of sinful Children
