[1][olds] Thus have I heard:

On a certain occasion the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied,
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, I will teach you the unworthy man
and the still more unworthy man.

I will teach you the worthy man
and the still more worthy man.

Do ye listen to it carefully.

Apply your minds and I will speak.'

'Yes, lord,'
replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said this:

'And of what sort, monks, is the unworthy man?

Herein, monks, a certain one has wrong view,
wrong aim,
wrong speech,
wrong action,
wrong livelihood,
wrong effort,
wrong mindfulness,
wrong concentration,
wrong knowledge,
wrong release.'

This one is called
"the unworthy man."

And of what sort, monks, is the still more unworthy man?

Herein a certain person
himself is one who has wrong view,
and further encourages another have wrong view;

himself is one has wrong aim,
and further encourages another to have wrong aim;

himself is one has wrong speech,
and further encourages another to have wrong speech;

and further encourages another to have wrong concentration;'

himself is one has wrong knowledge,
and further encourages another to have wrong knowledge;

himself is one has wrong concentration,
and further encourages another to have wrong release.'

This one is called
"the still more unworthy man."

And of what sort, monks, is the worthy man?

Herein, monks, a certain one has right view,
right aim,
right speech,
right action,
right livelihood,
right effort,
right mindfulness,
right concentration,'
right knowledge,
right release.'

This one is called
"the worthy man."

And of what sort, monks, is the still more worthy man?

Herein a certain person
