Proverbs related to the the theme of Avoiding Evil & Seeking Good:
14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.
16 For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall.
7 Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say.
8 Keep to a path far from [the adulteress], do not go near the door of her house,
9 lest you give your best strength to others and your years to one who is cruel,
10 lest strangers feast on your wealth and your toil enrich another man’s house.
16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
7 I saw among the simple, I noticed among the young men, a youth who lacked judgment.
8 He was going down the street near [the adulteress’] corner, walking along in the direction of [the adulteress’] house.
24 Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say.
25 Do not let your heart turn to [the adulteress’] ways or stray into her paths.
26 Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng.
27 Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
27 He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.
17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.
24 A discerning man keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.
1 An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgment.
16 A man who strays from the path of understanding comes to rest in the company of the dead.
1 A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
3 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
8 He who sows wickedness reaps trouble, and the rod of his fury will be destroyed.
11 Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
