Be attentive unto my words,
Incline your ear to what I say;
Not for to be falling backwards,
Letting yourself to go astray.
 
Let them not escape from your sight,
As you keep them within your heart;
Maintain direction what is right,
Letting your lips and tongue impart.
 
Let them not depart from your eyes,
For they are life to those who find;
Giving wisdom to make you wise,
Knowledge to satisfy your mind.
 
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For from it are issues of life;
Persist ever with vigilance,
That will help you cope with the strife.
 
The springs of life from it will flow,
As you put away crooked speech;
Shoddy talk can easily grow,
Deceiving of those you outreach.
 
Put away from your froward tongue,
Cleansing talk from your perverse lips;
Let not vulgar language be flung,
Drink no more poison that one sips.
 
Keep your eyes looking straight ahead,
Gazing at what is right in front;
What your eyes see your mind is fed,
From your searching will end the hunt.
 
Muse the direction of your feet,
Being a straight and narrow path;
Because of a detour could greet,
God having judgment with His wrath.
 
Do not swerve to the left or right,
Turn your foot away from evil;
Continue straight unto the light,
Which steers away from the devil.
