11 qqCome, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 rWhat man is he that desireth life,
And loveth many days, that he may ssee good?
13 tKeep thy tongue from evil,
And thy lips from uspeaking guile.
14 wDepart from evil, and do good;
Seek peace, and xpursue it.
15 yThe eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,
And zhis ears are open unto their cry.
16 aThe face of the Lord is against them that do evil,
bTo cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
cAnd delivereth them out of all their troubles.
And saveth such as be †of a contrite spirit.
