11Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord .
12Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
13keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
14Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
15The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;
20he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
21Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22The Lord redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
