Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son, don't forget my teaching; But let your heart keep my commandments:
   2: For length of days, and years of life, And peace, will they add to you.
   3: Don't let kindness and truth forsake you. Bind them around your neck. Write them on the tablet of your heart.
   4: So you will find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
   5: Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, And don't lean on your own understanding.
   6: In all your ways acknowledge him, And he will direct your paths.
   7: Don't be wise in your own eyes. Fear Yahweh, and depart from evil.
   8: It will be health to your body, And nourishment to your bones.
   9: Honor Yahweh with your substance, With the first fruits of all your increase:
   10: So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.
   11: My son, don't despise Yahweh's discipline, Neither be weary of his reproof:
   12: For whom Yahweh loves, he reproves; Even as a father the son in whom he delights.
   13: Happy is the man who finds wisdom, The man who gets understanding.
   14: For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, The profit of it better than fine gold.
   15: She is more precious than rubies. None of the things you can desire are to be compared to 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. All her paths are peace.
   18: She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her. Happy is everyone who retains her.
   19: By wisdom Yahweh 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 your eyes. Keep sound wisdom and discretion:
   22: So they will be life to your soul, And grace for your neck.
   23: Then you shall walk in your way securely. Your foot won't stumble.
   24: When you lie down, you will not be afraid. Yes, you will lie down, and your sleep will be sweet.
   25: Don't be afraid of sudden fear, Neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes:
   26: For Yahweh will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being taken.
   27: Don't withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do it.
   28: Don't say to your neighbor, "Go, and come again, Tomorrow I will give," When you have it by you.
   29: Don't devise evil against your neighbor, Seeing he dwells securely by you.
   30: Don't strive with a man without cause, If he has done you no harm.
   31: Don't envy the man of violence. Choose none of his ways.
   32: For the perverse is an abomination to Yahweh, But his friendship is with the upright.
   33: The curse of Yahweh is in the house of the wicked, But he blesses the habitation of the righteous.
   34: Surely he mocks the mockers, But he gives grace to the humble.
   35: The wise will inherit glory, But shame will be the promotion of fools.
