Proverbs 4:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 Then he 1taught me and said to me, "Let your heart 2hold fast my words; 3Keep my commandments and live; 5 4Acquire wisdom! 5Acquire understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth. 6 "Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; 6Love her, and she will watch over you. 7 "7The abeginning of wisdom is: 8Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. 8 "9Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her. 9 "She will place 10on your head a garland of grace; She will present you with a crown of beauty." 10 Hear, my son, and 11accept my sayings And the 12years of your life will be many. 11 I have 13directed you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in upright paths. 12 When you walk, your 14steps will not be impeded; And if you run, you 15will not stumble. 13 16Take hold of instruction; do not let go. Guard her, for she is your 17life. 14 18Do not enter the path of the wicked And do not proceed in the way of evil men.
