17A sinful man will not be reproved, but findeth an excuse according to his will. 18A man of counsel will be considerate; but a strange and proud man is not daunted with fear, even when of himself he hath done without counsel. 19Do nothing without advice; and when thou hast once done, repent not. 20Go not in a way wherein thou mayest fall, and stumble not among the stones.21Be not confident in a plain way. 22And beware of thine own children. 23In every good work trust thy own soul; for this is the keeping of the commandments.
