Bow down thine ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.
For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee, that they may indeed be ready upon thy lips.
That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made it known to thee this day, even to thee!
Have I not written to thee excellent things of counsel and knowledge,
that I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth, that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
