but let your heart keep my commandments;
and abundant welfare will they give you.
bind them about your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 So you will find favor and good reputef
in the sight of God and man.
and do not rely on your own insight.
and he will make straight your paths.
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
8 It will be healing to your fleshg
and refreshmenth to your bones.
and with the first fruits of all your produce;
and your vats will be bursting with wine.
or be weary of his reproof,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
and the man who gets understanding,
and its profit better than gold.
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
in her left hand are riches and honor.
and all her paths are peace.
those who hold her fast are called happy.
by understanding he established the heavens;
and the clouds drop down the dew.
let them not escape from your sight,i
and adornment for your neck.
and your foot will not stumble.
24 If you sit down,j you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
or of the ruink of the wicked, when it comes;
and will keep your foot from being caught.
27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it* is due,
when it is in your power to do it.
tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.
who dwells trustingly beside you.
when he has done you no harm.
and do not choose any of his ways;
but the upright are in his confidence.
but he blesses the abode of the righteous.
but to the humble he shows favor.
but fools getm disgrace.
