Proverbs 2:10–19

10 For wisdom will enter your heart,

and knowledge will delight you.

11 Discretion will watch over you,

and understanding will guard you.k

12 It will rescue you from the way of evil—

from anyone who says perverse things,

13 from those who abandon the right paths

to walk in ways of darkness,l

14 from those who enjoy doing evilm

and celebrate perversion,

15 whose paths are crooked,n

and whose ways are devious.o

16 It will rescue you from a forbidden woman,p

from a wayward woman with her flattering talk,q

17 who abandons the companion of her youthr

and forgets the covenant of her God;

18 for her house sinks down to death

and her ways to the land of the departed spirits.s

19 None return who go to her;

none reach the paths of life.t
