aMy son, if thou wilt receive my words,
2 So that thou bbincline thine ear unto wisdom,
And apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after cknowledge,
And †liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her das silver,
And searchest for her as for ehid treasures;
5 kThen shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For fthe Lord giveth wisdom:
Out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
8 He iikeepeth the paths of judgment,
And jpreserveth the way of his saints.
And mequity; yea, every good path.
And knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Understanding shall keep thee:
Heb. givest thy voice. See Ps. 46:6.
