1 Do not lay your heart upon your goods;
And do not say, “I have enough for my life.”

2 Do not follow your own mind and strength,
To walk in the ways of your heart:

3 And do not say, “Who shall control me in my deeds?”
For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall surely punish your pride.

4 Do not say, “I have sinned, and what harm has befallen me?
For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is patient,
He shall by no means let you go.

5 Concerning atonement,
Do not be without reverence to add sin unto sin;

6 And do not say, “His kindness is great;
He shall be appeased for the multitude of my sins.”
For kindness and wrath come from Him,
And His wrath rests upon sinners.

7 Do not delay to turn to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and do not put off from day to day;
For suddenly the wrath of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall come forth,
And in your security you shall be destroyed,
And perish in the day of vengeance.

8 Do not lay your heart upon goods acquired unrighteously,
For they shall not profit you in the day of calamity.

9 Do not winnow with every wind, and do not go into every way:
For so does the sinner that has a double tongue.

10 Be steadfast in your understanding;
And let your word be the same.

11 Be swift to hear; and let your being be sincere;
And give answer with patience.

12 If you have understanding, answer your neighbour;
If not, put your hand over your mouth.

13 Esteem and shame is in speech;
And the tongue of man is his downfall.

14 Do not be a whisperer, and do not lie in wait with your tongue;
For foul shame is upon the thief, and an evil condemnation upon the double- tongued.

15 Do not be ignorant of any matter, great or a small.
