020:004:001
Hear,
ye children,
the instruction of a father,
and attend to know understanding.


020:004:002
For I give you good doctrine,
forsake ye not my law.


020:004:003
For I was my father's son,
tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.


020:004:004
He taught me also,
and said unto me,
Let thine heart retain my words:
keep my commandments,
and live.


020:004:005
Get wisdom,
get understanding:
forget it not;
neither decline from the words of my mouth.


020:004:006
Forsake her not,
and she shall preserve thee:
love her,
and she shall keep thee.


020:004:007
Wisdom is the principal thing;
therefore get wisdom:
and with all thy getting get understanding.


020:004:008
Exalt her,
and she shall promote thee:
she shall bring thee to honour,
when thou dost embrace her.


020:004:009
She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace:
a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.


020:004:010
Hear,
O my son,
and receive my sayings;
and the years of thy life shall be many.


020:004:011
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom;
I have led thee in right paths.


020:004:012
When thou goest,
thy steps shall not be straitened;
and when thou runnest,
thou shalt not stumble.


020:004:013
Take fast hold of instruction;
let her not go:
keep her;
for she is thy life.


020:004:014
Enter not into the path of the wicked,
and go not in the way of evil men.


020:004:015
Avoid it,
pass not by it,
turn from it,
and pass away.


020:004:016
For they sleep not,
except they have done mischief;
and their sleep is taken away,
unless they cause some to fall.


020:004:017
For they eat the bread of wickedness,
and drink the wine of violence.


020:004:018
But the path of the just is as the shining light,
that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.


020:004:019
The way of the wicked is as darkness:
they know not at what they stumble.


020:004:020
My son,
attend to my words;
incline thine ear unto my sayings.


020:004:021
Let them not depart from thine eyes;
keep them in the midst of thine heart.


020:004:022
For they are life unto those that find them,
and health to all their flesh.


020:004:023
Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.


020:004:024
Put away from thee a froward mouth,
and perverse lips put far from thee.


020:004:025
Let thine eyes look right on,
and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.


020:004:026
Ponder the path of thy feet,
and let all thy ways be established.


020:004:027
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left:
remove thy foot from evil.
