My son,1 keep my words and store up my commands within you.
Keep my commands and you will live;2 guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.34
Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," and call understanding your kinsman;
they will keep you from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words.46
At the window of my house I looked out through the lattice.
I saw among the simple, I noticed among the young men, a youth who lacked judgment.5
