Proverbs 4:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. 3 When I was a boy in my father's house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, 4 he taught me and said, "Lay hold1 of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live.2 5 Get wisdom,3 get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. 6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;4 love her, and she will watch over you.5 7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all6 you have,a get understanding.7 8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.8 9 She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.9" 10 Listen, my son,10 accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.11 11 I guide12 you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.13 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.14
