Proverbs 24:27-29 Amplified Bible (AMP)

27 
Prepare your work outside
And get it ready for yourself in the field;
[a]Afterward build your house and establish a home.

28 
Do not be a witness against your [b]neighbor without cause,
And do not deceive with your lips [speak neither lies nor half-truths].
29 
Do not say, “I will do to him as he has done to me;
I will pay the man back for his deed.”
