Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, forget not my law; But let thy heart keep my commandments:
   2: For length of days, and years of life, And peace, will they add to thee.
   3: Let not kindness and truth forsake thee: Bind them about thy neck; Write them upon the tablet of thy heart:
   4: So shalt thou find favor and good understanding In the sight of God and man.
   5: Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding:
   6: In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths.
   7: Be not wise in thine own eyes; Fear Jehovah, and depart from evil:
   8: It will be health to thy navel, And marrow to thy bones.
   9: Honor Jehovah with thy substance, And with the first-fruits of all thine increase:
   10: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, And thy vats shall overflow with new wine.
   11: My son, despise not the chastening of Jehovah; Neither be weary of his reproof:
   12: For whom Jehovah loveth he reproveth; Even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
   13: Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, And the man that getteth understanding.
   14: For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, And the profit thereof than fine gold.
   15: She is more precious than rubies: And none of the things thou canst desire are to be compared unto her.
   16: Length of days is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor.
   17: Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace.
   18: She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: And happy is every one that retaineth her.
   19: Jehovah by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding he established the heavens.
   20: By his knowledge the depths were broken up, And the skies drop down the dew.
   21: My son, let them not depart from thine eyes; Keep sound wisdom and discretion:
   22: So shall they be life unto thy soul, And grace to thy neck.
   23: Then shalt thou walk in thy way securely, And thy foot shall not stumble.
   24: When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: Yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
   25: Be not afraid of sudden fear, Neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh:
   26: For Jehovah will be thy confidence, And will keep thy foot from being taken.
   27: Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, When it is in the power of thy hand to do it.
   28: Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, And to-morrow I will give; When thou hast it by thee.
   29: Devise not evil against thy neighbor, Seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
   30: Strive not with a man without cause, If he have done thee no harm.
   31: Envy thou not the man of violence, And choose none of his ways.
   32: For the perverse is an abomination to Jehovah; But his friendship is with the upright.
   33: The curse of Jehovah is in the house of the wicked; But he blesseth the habitation of the righteous.
   34: Surely he scoffeth at the scoffers; But he giveth grace unto the lowly.
   35: The wise shall inherit glory; But shame shall be the promotion of fools.
