Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart
3 yMy son, do not forget my teaching,
zbut let your heart keep my commandments,
2 for alength of days and years of life
and bpeace they will add to you.
Blessed Is the One Who Finds Wisdom
13 uBlessed is the one who finds wisdom,
and the one who gets understanding,
14 vfor the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than wgold.
15 She is more precious than xjewels,
and ynothing you desire can compare with her.
16 zLong life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are ariches and honor.
17 Her bways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
23 For the commandment is qa lamp and the teaching a light,
and the rreproofs of discipline are the way of life,
and robtains favor from the Lord,
17 Whoever heeds instruction is on dthe path to life,
but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.
19 Whoever is steadfast in righteousness ywill live,
but zhe who pursues evil will die.
30 The fruit of the righteous is wa tree of life,
and whoever xcaptures souls is wise.
28 pIn the path of righteousness is life,
and in its pathway there is no death.
but jperverseness in it breaks the spirit.
15 gIn the light of a king’s face there is life,
22 Good sense is sa fountain of life to him who has it,
but the instruction of fools is folly.
21 tDeath and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruits.
23 The fear of the Lord lleads to life,
and whoever has it rests msatisfied;
he will nnot be visited by harm.
21 Whoever zpursues righteousness and kindness
will find alife, righteousness, and honor.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
