Then I was the craftsman at his side.1 I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.232
"Now then, my sons, listen3 to me; blessed are4 those who keep my ways.533
Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it.
Blessed is the man who listens6 to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.
For whoever finds me7 finds life8 and receives favor from the LORD.936
But whoever fails to find me harms himself;10 all who hate me love death."11
