Silence. 8 I will make thee wise, and teach thee in the way. which thou shalt go: I will counsel mine eyes upon thee. 9 Ye shall not be as the horse, as the mule, not understanding: with bit and curb to stop his youth, not drawing near to thee. 10 Many the sorrows to the unjust one: and he trusting in Jehovah, mercy shall surround him. 11 Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye just: and shout for joy, all ye upright of heart.
