Proverbs 2:1-11 WBT

1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
2 So that thou incline thy ear to wisdom, [and] apply thy heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if thou criest after knowledge, [and] liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as [for] hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: [he is] a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; [and] every good path.
10 When wisdom entereth into thy heart, and knowledge is pleasant to thy soul;
11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
