17 Do not be excessively wicked and do not be a fool. Why should you adie before your time?

18 It is good that you grasp one thing and also not 1let go of the other; for the one who afears God comes forth with 2both of them.

19 aWisdom strengthens a wise man more than ten rulers who are in a city.

20 Indeed, athere is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.

21 Also, do not 1take seriously all words which are spoken, so that you will not hear your servant acursing you.

22 For 1you also have realized that you likewise have many times cursed others.
