Proverbs 22:17-21 HNV

17 Turn your ear, and listen to the words of the wise. Apply your heart to my teaching.
18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you, If all of them are ready on your lips.
19 That your trust may be in the LORD, I teach you today, even you.
20 Haven't I written to you thirty excellent things Of counsel and knowledge,
21 To teach you truth, reliable words, To give sound answers to the ones who sent you?
