But I say, "Fresh water is sweeter, and brings life even."
They say, "Sooner or later, you'll return (down here),"
But I say, "You never belonged there. Welcome home."
They say, "You can't do it."
But I say, "Jesus has already overcome. We have already won; we're already free."
They say, "Goodbye."
But I say, "Hello."
But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
--- Proverbs 4:18
Drink water from your own cistern,
flowing water from your own well.
Should your springs be scattered abroad,
streams of water in the streets?
Let them be for yourself alone,
and not for strangers with you.
Let your fountain be blessed,
and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
a lovely deer, a graceful doe.
Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight;
be intoxicated always in her love.
Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman
and embrace the bosom of an adulteress?
For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the LORD,
and He makes level all his paths.
--- Proverbs 5:15-21
