2 My son,x if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
and applying your heart to understandingy—
3 indeed, if you call out for insightz
and cry aloud for understanding,
and search for it as for hidden treasure,a
and find the knowledge of God.b
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;c
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.d
and protects the way of his faithful ones.g
9 Then you will understandh what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,i
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
and understanding will guard you.j
12 Wisdom will savek you from the ways of wicked men,
from men whose words are perverse,
to walk in dark ways,l
and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,m
15 whose paths are crookedn
and who are devious in their ways.o
