Proverbs 4:27

Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
– Proverbs 4:27

The deliberation in the previous verse leads one to properly identify the good way. Verse 27 exhorts to stay in that way and not leave it for one thing or the other. Chapter 4 ends having spoken to the heart, mouth, eyes, and feet. This speaks to the course of life of the whole person and exhorts to not turn, or bend away from the straight path of wisdom no matter the inducements.
