Proverbs 2:10-20 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

10 for wisdom will come into your heart,
    and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
11 prudence will watch over you;
    and understanding will guard you.
12 It will save you from the way of evil,
    from those who speak perversely,
13 who forsake the paths of uprightness
    to walk in the ways of darkness,
14 who rejoice in doing evil
    and delight in the perverseness of evil;
15 those whose paths are crooked,
    and who are devious in their ways.

16 You will be saved from the loose[a] woman,
    from the adulteress with her smooth words,
17 who forsakes the partner of her youth
    and forgets her sacred covenant;
18 for her way[b] leads down to death,
    and her paths to the shades;
19 those who go to her never come back,
    nor do they regain the paths of life.

20 Therefore walk in the way of the good,
    and keep to the paths of the just.
