Proverbs 4:1-6 WEB

1 Listen, sons, to a father's instruction. Pay attention and know understanding;
2 For I give you sound learning. Don't forsake my law.
3 For I was a son to my father, Tender and an only child in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words. Keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom. Get understanding. Don't forget, neither swerve from the words of my mouth.
6 Don't forsake her, and she will preserve you. Love her, and she will keep you.
