"And so, my children, a listen to me, for happy are all who follow my ways.
Listen to my counsel and be wise. Don't ignore it.
"Happy are those who listen to me, watching for me daily at my gates, waiting for me outside my home!
For whoever finds me finds life and wins approval from the LORD.
But those who miss me have injured themselves. All who hate me love death."
