:B:1 O Lord, Father and mas ter of my life, do not abandon me to the thoughtless words of my lips or allow me to fall because of them.
2 Who will deal out punishment to my thoughts and ap ply the discipline of wis dom to my heart? 3 Let them not be indulgent at my sins or the mistakes of my mind, lest my errors increase and sins multiply, and I fall into the hands of my enemies, to the joy of my foes.
4 Lord, Father and God of my life, do not allow me to become haughty
6 Do not let lust and lechery take hold of me
7 Children, learn how to control your language
8 The sinner will be caught in his own words, as happens to the proud man and to him who curses.
9 Do not get used to swearing, taking the name of the Holy One.
10 For, just as the slave who is constantly watched will not escape without blows so you, also, will not be found guiltless after constantly calling upon his name.
11 The man who swears habitually will be found full of sins, and disgrace will not depart from his house. If he fails to keep his oath due to carelessness, punishment will descend upon him
About impurity and adultery
:B:12 There is a way of talking which deserves death
13 Do not accustom your mouth to foul language for it will be sinful talk.
14 Remember your father and mother when you are sitting in the company of the great, lest you forget yourself in their presence and act like a fool. Then you would wish you had never been born, and curse the day of your birth.
15 A man used to indecent talk will never be reformed in his lifetime.
16 Two kinds of people multiply sins and a third attracts the Lords anger:
16 A blazing passion which burns like fire will not be extinguished until it burns itself up.
16 A man who seeks pleasure from his own body, he will not give up until he catches fire
18 The man unfaithful to the marriage bed who thinks like this, Who sees me? Darkness surrounds me, the walls hide me
19 He fears the scrutiny of men and does not realize that the Lords eyes are a thousand times brighter than the sun, that they watch the conduct of all men and penetrate into the most secret cor ners. 20 All things were present to him be fore they were created and so will they be after their end.
21 This man will be punished in view of the whole city, he will be caught when he least expects it.
22 In the same way, the woman who is unfaithful to her husband and gives him an heir by another man will be pun ished. 23 First, she has disobeyed the Law of the Almighty. Secondly, she has sinned against her husband and thirdly, she is tainted with adultery, for she has had children by another man.
24 She will be taken before the assembly and questioned about her children. 25 The children will not be able to take root
27 People who have seen her will know that nothing matters more than the fear of the Lord and nothing is sweeter than fulfilling his commands.
