Wisdom Delivers from Evil (Proverbs 2:12-22) KJV

12- To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

13- Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

14- Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

15- Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

16- To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

17- Which  forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

18- For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

19- None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

20- That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

21- For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

22- But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
