Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
– Proverbs 4:15
Solomon gives plain warning to deal with the way of evil. He urges to avoid it, pass not by, turn, and pass away. Such instruction reveals the folly of so many who want to get as close to sin as possible without “crossing the line.” They ask how far can I go before it’s too far? Through wisdom you discern the way of the wicked and then you get far from it.
