He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heartretain my words:keep my commandments, and live .
5Getwisdom,getunderstanding:forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.6Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore getwisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour , when thou dost embrace her.
She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crowna of glory shall she deliver to thee.
10Hear , O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many .
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in rightpaths.12
When thou goest , thy steps shall not be straitened ; and when thou runnest , thou shalt not stumble .
Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go : keep her; for she is thy life.14Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
