New International Version
20 My son,(A) pay attention to what I say;
turn your ear to my words.(B)
21 Do not let them out of your sight,(C)
keep them within your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
and health to one’s whole body.(D)
23 Above all else, guard(E) your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.(F)
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
25 Let your eyes(G) look straight ahead;
fix your gaze directly before you.
