26Be not ashamed to confess thy sins; and force not the course of the river. 27Make not thyself an underling to a foolish man; neither accept the person of the mighty. 28Strive for the truth unto death, and the Lord shall fight for thee. 29Be not hasty in thy tongue, and in thy deeds slack and remiss.30Be not as a lion in thy house, nor frantick among thy servants. 31Let not thine hand be stretched out to receive, and shut when thou shouldest repay.
