[5] [4]

[1][bodh][olds] 'Monks, there is no stepping in of wrong,
so long as faith is set on right things;
but when faith has vanished,
disbelief prevails and stays;
then there is a stepping in of wrong.

Monks, there is no stepping in of wrong,
so long as conscientiousness is set on right things;
but when conscientiousness has vanished,
unconscientiousness prevails and stays;
then there is a stepping in of wrong.

Monks, there is no stepping in of wrong,
so long as fear of blame is set on right things;
but when fear of blame has vanished,
recklessness of blame prevails and stays;
then there is a stepping in of wrong.

Monks, there is no stepping in of wrong,
so long as energy is set on right things;
but when energy has vanished,
indolence prevails and stays;
then there is a stepping in of wrong.

Monks, there is no stepping in of wrong,
so long as insight is set on right things;
but when insight has vanished,
lack of insight prevails and stays;
then there is a stepping in of wrong.'[1]
