but the prudent ignores an insult.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
I have made a covenant with my eyes;
how then could I gaze at a virgin?
Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.

turn your foot away from evil.
A fool gives full vent to his spirit,
but a wise man quietly holds it back.
