   1: My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
   2: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
   3: Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
   4: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
   5: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
   6: In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
   7: Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
   8: It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
   9: Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
   10: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
   11: My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
   12: For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; 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 merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
   15: She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
   16: Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
   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: The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
   20: By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
   21: My son, let not them 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 safely, 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 the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
   27: Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
   28: Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
   29: Devise not evil against thy neighbour, 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 oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
   32: For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.
   33: The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
   34: Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
   35: The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
