“Be sure, therefore, to trust righteousness, but do not trust unrighteousness. For the way of righteousness is straight, but the way of unrighteousness is crooked. But follow the straight and level way, and leave the crooked one alone. For the crooked way has no paths but only uneven ground and many obstacles, and it is rough and thorny.”
