Proverbs 3:1-12

Trust the Lord

1 My son, don't forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands;
2 for they will bring you many days, a full life,a and well-being.b
3 Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.c
4 Then you will find favor and high regard in the sight of God and man.d
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding;
6 think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.e
7 Don't consider yourself to be wise;f fear the Lord and turn away from evil.g
8 This will be healing for your bodyh and strengthening for your bones.
9 Honor the Lord with your possessions and with the first produce of your entire harvest;i
10 then your barns will be completely filled, and your vats will overflow with new wine.j
11 Do not despise the Lord's instruction, my son, and do not loathe His discipline;k
12 for the Lord disciplines the one He loves, just as a father, the son he delights in.l
