Proverbs 2:1-6 NCV

1 My child, listen to what I say and remember what I command you.
2 Listen carefully to wisdom; set your mind on understanding.
3 Cry out for wisdom, and beg for understanding.
4 Search for it like silver, and hunt for it like hidden treasure.
5 Then you will understand respect for the Lord, and you will find that you know God.
6 Only the Lord gives wisdom; he gives knowledge and understanding.
