Proverbs 2:1-8

Good Things Come From Wisdom

1 My son, accept my words. Store up my commands inside you.
2 Let your ears listen to wisdom. Apply your heart to understanding.
3 Call out for the ability to be wise. Cry out for understanding.
4 Look for it as you would look for silver. Search for it as you would search for hidden treasure.
5 Then you will understand how to have respect for the Lord. You will find out how to know God.
6 The LORD gives wisdom. Knowledge and understanding come from his mouth.
7 He stores up success for honest people. He is like a shield to those who live without blame. He keeps them safe.
8 He guards the path of those who are honest. He watches over the way of his faithful ones.
