12 Whoever of you loves life(A)
    and desires to see many good days,
13 keep your tongue(B) from evil
    and your lips from telling lies.(C)
14 Turn from evil and do good;(D)
    seek peace(E) and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord(F) are on the righteous,(G)
    and his ears are attentive(H) to their cry;
16 but the face of the Lord is against(I) those who do evil,(J)
    to blot out their name(K) from the earth.
