Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, if you will take my words to your heart, storing up my laws in your mind;
   2: So that your ear gives attention to wisdom, and your heart is turned to knowledge;
   3: Truly, if you are crying out for good sense, and your request is for knowledge;
   4: If you are looking for her as for silver, and searching for her as for stored-up wealth;
   5: Then the fear of the Lord will be clear to you, and knowledge of God will be yours.
   6: For the Lord gives wisdom; out of his mouth come knowledge and reason:
   7: He has salvation stored up for the upright, he is a breastplate to those in whom there is no evil;
   8: He keeps watch on the ways which are right, and takes care of those who have the fear of him.
   9: Then you will have knowledge of righteousness and right acting, and upright behaviour, even of every good way.
   10: For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasing to your soul;
   11: Wise purposes will be watching over you, and knowledge will keep you;
   12: Giving you salvation from the evil man, from those whose words are false;
   13: Who give up the way of righteousness, to go by dark roads;
   14: Who take pleasure in wrongdoing, and have joy in the evil designs of the sinner;
   15: Whose ways are not straight, and whose footsteps are turned to evil:
   16: To take you out of the power of the strange woman, who says smooth words with her tongue;
   17: Who is false to the husband of her early years, and does not keep the agreement of her God in mind:
   18: For her house is on the way down to death; her footsteps go down to the shades:
   19: Those who go to her do not come back again; their feet do not keep in the ways of life:
   20: So that you may go in the way of good men, and keep in the footsteps of the upright.
   21: For the upright will be living in the land, and the good will have it for their heritage.
   22: But sinners will be cut off from the land, and those whose acts are false will be uprooted.
