17 The words of the wise: Incline your ear and hear my words, and apply your mind to my teaching;
18 for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you, if all of them are ready on your lips.
19 So that your trust may be in the Lord, I have made them known to you today—yes, to you.
20 Have I not written for you thirty sayings of admonition and knowledge,
21 to show you what is right and true, so that you may give a true answer to those who sent you?
