4 Hear, amy children, the instruction of a father,
And give attention to know understanding;
Do not forsake my law.
bTender and the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 cHe also taught me, and said to me:
“Let your heart retain my words;
dKeep my commands, and live.
5 eGet wisdom! Get understanding!
Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
fLove her, and she will keep you.
7 gWisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
8 hExalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head ian ornament of grace;
A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”
jAnd the years of your life will be many.
