“Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
“Do not turn (natah: incline, influence, bend or bow down, hold out, extend, thrust aside, thrust away) to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil (ra`: wickedness, mischief, hurt, bad, trouble, affliction, adversity, harm).”
Don’t turn and be moved to the right or to the left but turn your foot from evil and wickedness that leads to trouble and affliction.
The Word often reminds us to stay on the straight path, never allowing ourselves to become distracted. We must take this to heart and walk accordingly. Today, put on your spiritual blinders and keep your gaze fixed upon the Lord. Don’t even take one step towards evil for it is a snare that will only bring you harm and troubles.
