Geneva Study Bible
   1: Listen, sons, to a father's instruction. Pay attention and know understanding;
   2: For I give you sound learning. Don't forsake my law.
   3: For I was a son to my father, Tender and an only child in the sight of my mother.
   4: He taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words. Keep my commandments, and live.
   5: Get wisdom. Get understanding. Don't forget, neither swerve from the words of my mouth.
   6: Don't forsake her, and she will preserve you. Love her, and she will keep you.
   7: Wisdom is supreme. Get wisdom. Yes, though it costs all your possessions, get understanding.
   8: Esteem her, and she will exalt you. She will bring you to honor, when you embrace her.
   9: She will give to your head a garland of grace. A crown of splendor will she deliver to you."
   10: Listen, my son, and receive my sayings. The years of your life will be many.
   11: I have taught you in the way of wisdom. I have led you in paths of uprightness.
   12: When you go, your steps will not be hampered. When you run, you will not stumble.
   13: Take firm hold of instruction. Don't let her go. Keep her, for she is your life.
   14: Don't enter into the path of the wicked. Don't walk in the way of evil men.
   15: Avoid it, and don't pass by it. Turn from it, and pass on.
   16: For they don't sleep, unless they do evil. Their sleep is taken away, unless they make someone fall.
   17: For they eat the bread of wickedness, And drink the wine of violence.
   18: But the path of the righteous is like the dawning light, That shines more and more until the perfect day.
   19: The way of the wicked is like darkness. They don't know what they stumble over.
   20: My son, attend to my words. Turn your ear to my sayings.
   21: Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the midst of your heart.
   22: For they are life to those who find them, And health to their whole body.
   23: Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it is the wellspring of life.
   24: Put away from yourself a perverse mouth. Put corrupt lips far from you.
   25: Let your eyes look straight ahead. Fix your gaze directly before you.
   26: Make the path of your feet level. Let all of your ways be established.
   27: Don't turn to the right hand nor to the left. Remove your foot from evil.
