14 Don’t enter into the path of the wicked.
    Don’t walk in the way of evil men.

    Turn from it, and pass on.
16 For they don’t sleep, unless they do evil.
    Their sleep is taken away, unless they make someone fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness,
    and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the dawning light,
    that shines more and more until the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness.
    They don’t know what they stumble over.
