What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
Consider carefully what is before you;
If you are a man given to appetite.
For they are deceptive food.
4 aDo not overwork to be rich;
bBecause of your own understanding, cease!
5 1Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.
Nor desire his delicacies;
“Eat and drink!” dhe says to you,
But his heart is not with you.
And waste your pleasant words.
9 eDo not speak in the hearing of a fool,
For he will despise the wisdom of your words.
10 Do not remove the ancient 3landmark,
Nor enter the fields of the fatherless;
11 fFor their Redeemer is mighty;
He will plead their cause against you.
And your ears to words of knowledge.
13 gDo not withhold correction from a child,
For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die.
And deliver his soul from 4hell.
My heart will rejoice—indeed, I myself;
16 Yes, my 5inmost being will rejoice
When your lips speak right things.
17 hDo not let your heart envy sinners,
But ibe zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day;
And your hope will not be cut off.
And guide your heart in the way.
20 kDo not mix with winebibbers,
Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags.
22 lListen to your father who begot you,
And do not despise your mother when she is old.
23 mBuy the truth, and do not sell it,
Also wisdom and instruction and understanding.
24 nThe father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.
And let her who bore you rejoice.
And let your eyes observe my ways.
27 oFor a harlot is a deep pit,
And a seductress is a narrow well.
28 pShe also lies in wait as for a victim,
And increases the unfaithful among men.
29 qWho has woe?
Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions?
Who has complaints?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who rhas redness of eyes?
30 sThose who linger long at the wine,
Those who go in search of tmixed wine.
When it sparkles in the cup,
When it 7swirls around smoothly;
And stings like a viper.
And your heart will utter perverse things.
34 Yes, you will be like one who lies down in the 8midst of the sea,
Or like one who lies at the top of the mast, saying:
35 “They uhave struck me, but I was not hurt;
They have beaten me, but I did not feel it.
When shall vI awake, that I may seek another drink?”
24 Do not be aenvious of evil men, Nor desire to be with them;
And their lips talk of troublemaking.
And by understanding it is established;
With all precious and pleasant riches.
5 bA wise man is strong,
Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength;
6 cFor by wise counsel you will wage your own war,
And in a multitude of counselors there is safety.
7 dWisdom is too lofty for a fool;
He does not open his mouth in the gate.
8 He who eplots to do evil
Will be called a 1schemer.
And the scoffer is an abomination to men.
10 If you ffaint in the day of adversity,
Your strength is small.
11 gDeliver those who are drawn toward death,
And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.
Does not hHe who weighs the hearts consider it?
He who keeps your soul, does He not know it?
And will He not render to each man iaccording to his deeds?
13 My son, jeat honey because it is good,
And the honeycomb which is sweet to your taste;
14 kSo shall the knowledge of wisdom be to your soul;
If you have found it, there is a 2prospect,
And your hope will not be cut off.
Do not plunder his resting place;
16 lFor a righteous man may fall seven times
And rise again,
mBut the wicked shall fall by calamity.
17 nDo not rejoice when your enemy falls,
And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
18 Lest the Lord see it, and 3it displease Him,
And He turn away His wrath from him.
19 oDo not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the wicked;
The lamp of the wicked will be put out.
21 My son, pfear the Lord and the king;
Do not associate with those given to change;
And who knows the ruin those two can bring?
23 These things also belong to the wise:
24 rHe who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,”
Him the people will curse;
Nations will abhor him.
25 But those who rebuke the wicked will have sdelight,
And a good blessing will come upon them.
27 tPrepare your outside work,
Make it fit for yourself in the field;
And afterward build your house.
28 uDo not be a witness against your neighbor without cause,
5For would you deceive with your lips?
29 vDo not say, “I will do to him just as he has done to me;
I will render to the man according to his work.”
And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;
31 And there it was, wall overgrown with thorns;
Its surface was covered with nettles;
Its stone wall was broken down.

33 xA little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest;
And your need like 7an armed man.
