Geneva Study Bible
   1: My son! my law forget not, And my commands let thy heart keep,
   2: For length of days and years, Life and peace they do add to thee.
   3: Let not kindness and truth forsake thee, Bind them on thy neck, Write them on the tablet of thy heart,
   4: And find grace and good understanding In the eyes of God and man.
   5: Trust unto Jehovah with all thy heart, And unto thine own understanding lean not.
   6: In all thy ways know thou Him, And He doth make straight thy paths.
   7: Be not wise in thine own eyes, Fear Jehovah, and turn aside from evil.
   8: Healing it is to thy navel, And moistening to thy bones.
   9: Honour Jehovah from thy substance, And from the beginning of all thine increase;
   10: And filled are thy barns [with] plenty, And [with] new wine thy presses break forth.
   11: Chastisement of Jehovah, my son, despise not, And be not vexed with His reproof,
   12: For whom Jehovah loveth He reproveth, Even as a father the son He is pleased with.
   13: O the happiness of a man [who] hath found wisdom, And of a man [who] bringeth forth understanding.
   14: For better [is] her merchandise Than the merchandise of silver, And than gold -- her increase.
   15: Precious she [is] above rubies, And all thy pleasures are not comparable to her.
   16: Length of days [is] in her right hand, In her left [are] wealth and honour.
   17: Her ways [are] ways of pleasantness, And all her paths [are] peace.
   18: A tree of life she [is] to those laying hold on her, And whoso is retaining her [is] happy.
   19: Jehovah by wisdom did found the earth, He prepared the heavens by understanding.
   20: By His knowledge depths have been rent, And clouds do drop dew.
   21: My son! let them not turn from thine eyes, Keep thou wisdom and thoughtfulness,
   22: And they are life to thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
   23: Then thou goest thy way confidently, And thy foot doth not stumble.
   24: If thou liest down, thou art not afraid, Yea, thou hast lain down, And sweet hath been thy sleep.
   25: Be not afraid of sudden fear, And of the desolation of the wicked when it cometh.
   26: For Jehovah is at thy side, And He hath kept thy foot from capture.
   27: Withhold not good from its owners, When thy hand [is] toward God to do [it].
   28: Say not thou to thy friend, 'Go, and return, and to-morrow I give,' And substance with thee.
   29: Devise not against thy neighbour evil, And he sitting confidently with thee.
   30: Strive not with a man without cause, If he have not done thee evil.
   31: Be not envious of a man of violence, Nor fix thou on any of his ways.
   32: For an abomination to Jehovah [is] the perverted, And with the upright [is] His secret counsel.
   33: The curse of Jehovah [is] in the house of the wicked. And the habitation of the righteous He blesseth.
   34: If the scorners He doth scorn, Yet to the humble He doth give grace.
   35: Honour do the wise inherit, And fools are bearing away shame!
