aKeep thy foot when thou goest to aathe house of God, and be more ready to hear, bthan to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. 2 cBe not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any ||thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be dfew. 3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of ebusiness; and a fool’s voice is known fby multitude of words. 4 gWhen thou vowest a vow unto God, hdefer not to pay it; for he hath no ipleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. 6 jSuffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before kthe angel, that it was lan error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
