aHear, ye children, the instruction of a father,

And attend to know bunderstanding.

For I give you good cdoctrine,

Forsake ye not my law.

For I was my father’s son,

dTender and eonly beloved in the sight of my mother.

fHe taught me also, and said unto me,

Let thine heart retain my words:

gKeep my commandments, and live.

hiGet wisdom, iget bunderstanding:

Forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee:

jLove her, and she shall keep thee.

Wisdom is kthe principal thing; therefore iget wisdom:

And with all thy getting iget bunderstanding.

Exalt her, and she shall promote thee:

She shall lbring thee to honour, when thou dost membrace her.

She shall give to thine head nan ornament of grace:

||A crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

10  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings;

And othe years of thy life shall be many.
