Proverbs 1:11; Proverbs 1:18; Proverbs 2:1; Proverbs 2:7; Proverbs 7:1; Proverbs 10:14; Proverbs 13:22; Proverbs 27:16 (New American Standard)
If they say, "Come with us, Let us lie in wait for blood, Let us ambush the innocent without cause ;
But they lie in wait for their own blood ; They ambush their own lives.
My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you,
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright ; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
My son, keep my words And treasure my commandments within you.
Wise men store up knowledge, But with the mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand.
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.
