1 The deliberations of the good man are not in the control of the deceitful spirit, Beliar, for the Messenger of Shalom guides his life.

2 For he does not look with passionate longing at corruptible things, nor does he accumulate wealth out of love for pleasure.

3 He does not find delight in pleasure, nor does he grieve his neighbor, nor does he stuff himself with delicacies, nor is he led astray by visual excitement: 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is his portion.

4 The good mindset does not receive glory or dishonor from men, nor does it know deceit, or lying, or conflict, or abuse. For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 dwells in him, illumines his life, and he rejoices in everything at every appropriate time.

5 The good set of mind does not talk from both sides of its mouth: praises and curses, abuse and honor, calm and strife, hypocrisy and truth, poverty and wealth, but it has one disposition, uncontaminated and pure, toward all men.

6 There is no duplicity in its perception or its hearing. Whatever it does, or speaks, or perceives, it knows that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is watching over its life,

7 for he cleanses his mind in order that he will not be suspected of wrongdoing either by men or by Elohim. The works of Beliar are two-fold, and have in them no integrity.
