Proverbs 22:17-21 NLT

17 Listen to the words of the wise; apply your heart to my instruction.
18 For it is good to keep these sayings deep within yourself, always ready on your lips.
19 I am teaching you today -- yes, you -- so you will trust in the LORD.
20 I have written thirty sayings for you, filled with advice and knowledge.
21 In this way, you may know the truth and bring an accurate report to those who sent you.
