020:003:001
My son,
forget not my law;
but let thine heart keep my commandments:


020:003:002
For length of days,
and long life,
and peace,
shall they add to thee.


020:003:003
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:
bind them about thy neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart:


020:003:004
So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.


020:003:005
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.


020:003:006
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.


020:003:007
Be not wise in thine own eyes:
fear the LORD,
and depart from evil.


020:003:008
It shall be health to thy navel,
and marrow to thy bones.


020:003:009
Honour the LORD with thy substance,
and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:


020:003:010
So shall thy barns be filled with plenty,
and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.


020:003:011
My son,
despise not the chastening of the LORD;
neither be weary of his correction:


020:003:012
For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth;
even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.


020:003:013
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,
and the man that getteth understanding.


020:003:014
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.


020:003:015
She is more precious than rubies:
and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.


020:003:016
Length of days is in her right hand;
and in her left hand riches and honour.


020:003:017
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.


020:003:018
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:
and happy is every one that retaineth her.


020:003:019
The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth;
by understanding hath he established the heavens.


020:003:020
By his knowledge the depths are broken up,
and the clouds drop down the dew.


020:003:021
My son,
let not them depart from thine eyes:
keep sound wisdom and discretion:


020:003:022
So shall they be life unto thy soul,
and grace to thy neck.


020:003:023
Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely,
and thy foot shall not stumble.


020:003:024
When thou liest down,
thou shalt not be afraid:
yea,
thou shalt lie down,
and thy sleep shall be sweet.


020:003:025
Be not afraid of sudden fear,
neither of the desolation of the wicked,
when it cometh.


020:003:026
For the LORD shall be thy confidence,
and shall keep thy foot from being taken.


020:003:027
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.


020:003:028
Say not unto thy neighbour,
Go,
and come again,
and to morrow I will give;
when thou hast it by thee.


020:003:029
Devise not evil against thy neighbour,
seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.


020:003:030
Strive not with a man without cause,
if he have done thee no harm.


020:003:031
Envy thou not the oppressor,
and choose none of his ways.


020:003:032
For the froward is abomination to the LORD:
but his secret is with the righteous.


020:003:033
The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked:
but he blesseth the habitation of the just.


020:003:034
Surely he scorneth the scorners:
but he giveth grace unto the lowly.


020:003:035
The wise shall inherit glory:
but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
