Proverbs 3:1–12

My son, forget not my law;

aBut let thine heart keep my commandments:

For blength of days, and long life,

And cpeace, shall they add to thee.

Let not dmercy and truth forsake thee:

eBind them about thy fneck;

ffWrite them upon the table of thine heart:

gSo shalt thou find hfavour and ||good understanding

gIn the sight of God and man.

iTrust in the Lord with all thine heart;

And jlean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways kacknowledge him,

And lhe shall direct thy paths.

mBe not wise in thine own eyes:

nFear the Lord, and nodepart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel,

And pmarrow to thy bones.

Honour the Lord with thy substance,

And with qthe firstfruits of all thine increase:

10  So shall thy rbarns be filled with plenty,

And thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

11  sMy son, despise not the chastening of the Lord;

Neither be weary of his correction:

12  For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth;

Even tas a father the son in whom he delighteth.
