Proverbs 3

1 - My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

2 - For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3 - Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4 - So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 - In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7 - Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

8 - It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

9 - Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10 - So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

11 - My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

12 - For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

13 - Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

14 - For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

15 - She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16 - Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

17 - Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

18 - She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

19 - The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

20 - By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

21 - My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

22 - So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

23 - Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

24 - When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

25 - Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

26 - For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

27 - Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

28 - Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

29 - Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

30 - Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

31 - Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

32 - For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.

33 - The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

34 - Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

35 - The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
