6 Do not give your heart to whores, or you will ruin your inheritance.
12 Do not take pleasure in what pleases the godless; remember they will not go unpunished here below.
13 Keep your distance from the man who has the power to put to death, and you will not be haunted by the fear of dying. If you do approach him, make no false move, or he may take your life. Realise that you are treading among trip-lines, that you are strolling on the battlements.
15 For conversation seek the intelligent, let all your discussions bear on the law of the Most High.
16 Have the upright for your table companions, and let your pride be in fearing the Lord.
17 Work from skilled hands will earn its praise, but a leader of the people must be skilful in words.
