Proverbs 4:1-6 NCV

1 My children, listen to your father's teaching; pay attention so you will understand.
2 What I am telling you is good, so do not forget what I teach you.
3 When I was a young boy in my father's house and like an only child to my mother,
4 my father taught me and said, "Hold on to my words with all your heart. Keep my commands and you will live.
5 Get wisdom and understanding. Don't forget or ignore my words.
6 Hold on to wisdom, and it will take care of you. Love it, and it will keep you safe.
