17 Bow down thy ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thy heart to my knowledge.
18 For [it is] a pleasant thing if thou keepest them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.
20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send to thee?
