17 1Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your mind to my knowledge;
18 For it will be 2pleasant if you keep them within you, That they may be ready on your lips.
19 So that your 3trust may be in the LORD, I have taught you today, even you.
20 Have I not written to you 4excellent things Of counsels and knowledge,
21 To make you 5know the certainty of the words of truth That you may 6correctly answer him who sent you?
