020:002:001
My son,
if thou wilt receive my words,
and hide my commandments with thee;


020:002:002
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom,
and apply thine heart to understanding;


020:002:003
Yea,
if thou criest after knowledge,
and liftest up thy voice for understanding;


020:002:004
If thou seekest her as silver,
and searchest for her as for hid treasures;


020:002:005
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.


020:002:006
For the LORD giveth wisdom:
out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.


020:002:007
He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous:
he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.


020:002:008
He keepeth the paths of judgment,
and preserveth the way of his saints.


020:002:009
Then shalt thou understand righteousness,
and judgment,
and equity;
yea,
every good path.


020:002:010
When wisdom entereth into thine heart,
and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;


020:002:011
Discretion shall preserve thee,
understanding shall keep thee:


020:002:012
To deliver thee from the way of the evil man,
from the man that speaketh froward things;


020:002:013
Who leave the paths of uprightness,
to walk in the ways of darkness;


020:002:014
Who rejoice to do evil,
and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;


020:002:015
Whose ways are crooked,
and they froward in their paths:


020:002:016
To deliver thee from the strange woman,
even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;


020:002:017
Which forsaketh the guide of her youth,
and forgetteth the covenant of her God.


020:002:018
For her house inclineth unto death,
and her paths unto the dead.


020:002:019
None that go unto her return again,
neither take they hold of the paths of life.


020:002:020
That thou mayest walk in the way of good men,
and keep the paths of the righteous.


020:002:021
For the upright shall dwell in the land,
and the perfect shall remain in it.


020:002:022
But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth,
and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
