[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

PROV 3:1 My son! my law forget not, And my commands let thy heart keep,

PROV 3:2 For length of days and years, Life and peace they do add to thee.

PROV 3:3 Let not kindness and truth forsake thee, Bind them on thy neck, Write them on the tablet of thy heart,

PROV 3:4 And find grace and good understanding In the eyes of God and man.

PROV 3:5 Trust unto Jehovah with all thy heart, And unto thine own understanding lean not.

PROV 3:6 In all thy ways know thou Him, And He doth make straight thy paths.

PROV 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes, Fear Jehovah, and turn aside from evil.

PROV 3:8 Healing it is to thy navel, And moistening to thy bones.

PROV 3:9 Honour Jehovah from thy substance, And from the beginning of all thine increase;

PROV 3:10 And filled are thy barns `with' plenty, And `with' new wine thy presses break forth.

PROV 3:11 Chastisement of Jehovah, my son, despise not, And be not vexed with His reproof,

PROV 3:12 For whom Jehovah loveth He reproveth, Even as a father the son He is pleased with.

PROV 3:13 O the happiness of a man `who' hath found wisdom, And of a man `who' bringeth forth understanding.

PROV 3:14 For better `is' her merchandise Than the merchandise of silver, And than gold -- her increase.

PROV 3:15 Precious she `is' above rubies, And all thy pleasures are not comparable to her.

PROV 3:16 Length of days `is' in her right hand, In her left `are' wealth and honour.

PROV 3:17 Her ways `are' ways of pleasantness, And all her paths `are' peace.

PROV 3:18 A tree of life she `is' to those laying hold on her, And whoso is retaining her `is' happy.

PROV 3:19 Jehovah by wisdom did found the earth, He prepared the heavens by understanding.

PROV 3:20 By His knowledge depths have been rent, And clouds do drop dew.

PROV 3:21 My son! let them not turn from thine eyes, Keep thou wisdom and thoughtfulness,

PROV 3:22 And they are life to thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

PROV 3:23 Then thou goest thy way confidently, And thy foot doth not stumble.

PROV 3:24 If thou liest down, thou art not afraid, Yea, thou hast lain down, And sweet hath been thy sleep.

PROV 3:25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, And of the desolation of the wicked when it cometh.

PROV 3:26 For Jehovah is at thy side, And He hath kept thy foot from capture.

PROV 3:27 Withhold not good from its owners, When thy hand `is' toward God to do `it'.

PROV 3:28 Say not thou to thy friend, `Go, and return, and to-morrow I give,' And substance with thee.

PROV 3:29 Devise not against thy neighbour evil, And he sitting confidently with thee.

PROV 3:30 Strive not with a man without cause, If he have not done thee evil.

PROV 3:31 Be not envious of a man of violence, Nor fix thou on any of his ways.

PROV 3:32 For an abomination to Jehovah `is' the perverted, And with the upright `is' His secret counsel.

PROV 3:33 The curse of Jehovah `is' in the house of the wicked. And the habitation of the righteous He blesseth.

PROV 3:34 If the scorners He doth scorn, Yet to the humble He doth give grace.

PROV 3:35 Honour do the wise inherit, And fools are bearing away shame!
