Proverbs IV

[1] Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

[2] For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

[3] For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

[4] He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

[5] Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

[6] Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

[7] Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

[8] Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

[9] She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

[10] Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

[11] I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

[12] When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

[13] Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

[14] Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

[15] Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

[16] For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

[17] For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

[18] But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

[19] The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

[20] My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

[21] Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

[22] For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

[23] Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

[24] Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

[25] Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

[26] Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

[27] Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
