For at the last thou shalt find her rest, and that shall be turned to thy joy.
Then shall her fetters be a strong defense for thee, and her chains a robe of glory.
For there is a golden ornament upon her, and her bands are purple lace.
Thou shalt put her on as a robe of honor, and shalt put her bout thee as a crown of joy.
My son, if thou wilt, thou shalt be taught; and if thou wilt apply thy mind, thou shalt be prudent.
If thou love to hear, thou shalt receive understanding; and if thou bow thine ear, thou shalt be wise.
Stand in the multitude of the elders, and cleave unto him that is wise.
Be willing to hear every godly discourse, and let not the parables of understanding escape thee.
And if thou seest a man of understanding, get thee quickly unto him, and let thy foot wear the steps of his door.
Let thy mind be upon the ordinances of the Lord, and meditate continually in His commandments; He shall establish thine heart, and give thee wisdom at thine own desire.
