9-15So now you can pick out what’s true and fair,find all the good trails!Lady Wisdom will be your close friend,and Brother Knowledge your pleasant companion.Good Sense will scout ahead for danger,Insight will keep an eye out for you.They’ll keep you from making wrong turns,or following the bad directionsOf those who are lost themselvesand can’t tell a trail from a tumbleweed,These losers who make a game of eviland throw parties to celebrate perversity,Traveling paths that go nowhere,wandering in a maze of detours and dead ends.

Read Proverbs 2
