1 G5207 O son, G1699 [2my G3544.1 3laws G3361 1forget not], G1950 G3588 and G1161 G4487 [2my sayings G1473 G5083 1give heed to] G4674 in your G2588 heart!
2 G3372 For the length G1063 G979 of existence, G2532 and G2094 years G2222 of life G2532 and G1515 peace G4369 shall be added G1473 to you.
3 G1654 Charity G2532 and G4102 trust -- G3361 do not G1587 let them fail G1473 to you! G855.1 but affix G1161 G1473 them G1909 upon G4674 your G5137 neck! G1125 write G1473 them G1909 upon G4109 the tablet G2588 of your heart! G1473
4 G2532 and G2147 you shall find G5484 favor. G2532 And G4306 think beforehand G2570 on the good things G1799 before G2962 the lord G2532 and G444 men!
5 G1510.5 Be G3982 yielding G1722 with G3650 your whole G2588 heart G1909 upon G2316 God, G1909 and upon G1161 G4674 your own G4678 wisdom G3361 be not encouraged! G1869
6 G1722 In G3956 all G3598 your ways G1473 G1107 make her known! G1473 G2443 that G3718 she should cut straight G3588 G3598 your ways. G1473
7 G3361 Be not G1510.5 G5429 skilled G3844 of G4572 yourself, G5399 but fear G1161 G3588 G2316 God, G2532 and G1578 turn aside G575 from G3956 all G2556 evil!
8 G5119 Then G2392 shall there be healing G1510.8.3 G3588 to G4983 your body, G1473 G2532 and G1958 care G3588 to G3747 your bones. G1473
9 G5091 Esteem G3588 the G2962 lord G575 by G4674 your G1342 just G4192 toils, G2532 and G536.1 dedicate G1473 to him G575 from G4674 your G2590 fruits G1343 of righteousness!
10 G2443 that G4130 [2should be filled G3588 G5009 1your storerooms] G1473 G4140 with fullness G4621 of grain, G3631 and wine G1161 G3588 G3025 [2of your wine vats G1473 G1545.3 1should gush out].
11 G5207 O son, G3361 do not G3643 have little regard G3809 for the instruction G2962 of the lord, G3366 nor G1590 loosen up G5259 under G1473 his G1651 reproving!
12 G3739 For whom G1063 G25 the lord loves G2962 G3811 he corrects; G3146 and he whips G1161 G3956 every G5207 son G3739 whom G3858 he welcomes.
13 G3107 Blessed is G444 the man G3739 who G2147 found G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G2349 the mortal G3739 who G1492 beholds G5428 intelligence.
14 G2908 For it is better G1063 G1473 to trade for her, G1710 G2228 than G5553 for gold G2532 and G694 silver G2344 treasures.
15 G5093 [3more valuable than G1161 1And G1510.2.3 2she is G3037 5stones G4185 4very costly]; G3956 and every G1161 G5093 valuable thing G3756 [2not G514 3 equal 5worth G1473 4her G1510.2.3 1is].
16 G3372 For length G1063 G979 of existence G2532 and G2094 years G2222 of life G1722 are in G3588 G1188 her right hand; G1473 G1722 and in G1161 G3588 G710 her left G1473 G4149 riches G2532 and G1391 glory. G1537 Out of G3588 G4750 her mouth G1473 G1607 goes forth G1343 in righteousness; G3551 and law G1161 G2532 and G1656 mercy G1909 [2upon G1100 3 her tongue G5409 1she wears].
17 G3588 G3598 Her ways G1473 G3598 [2ways G2570 1 are good], G2532 and G3956 all G3588 G5147 her paths G1473 G1722 are in G1515 peace.
18 G3586 [2a tree G2222 3of life G1510.2.3 1She is] G3956 to all G3588 the ones G472 holding G1473 her; G2532 and G3588 to the ones G1903.1 leaning G1909 upon G1473 her G5613 [2as G1909 3upon G2962 4 the lord G804 1 are safe].
19 G3588 G2316 God G3588 in G4678 wisdom G2311 founded G3588 the G1093 earth; G2090 and he prepared G1161 G3772 the heavens G1722 in G5428 intelligence.
20 G1722 In G144 his perception G1473 G12 abysses G4486 were torn, G3509 and clouds G1161 G4482 flowed G1408.1 dew.
21 G5207 O son, G3361 you should not G3901 let it flow by; G5083 but heed G1161 G1699 my G1012 counsel G2532 and G1771 insight!
22 G2443 that G2198 [2should live G3588 G5590 1your soul], G1473 G2532 and G5484 favor G1510.3 should be G4012 around G4674 your G5137 neck; G1510.8.3 and it will be G1161 G2392 healing G3588 to G4561 your flesh, G1473 G2532 and G1958 care G3588 to G4674 your G3747 bones;
23 G2443 that G4198 you should go G3982 yielded G1722 in G1515 peace G3956 in all G3588 G3598 your ways, G1473 G3588 and the G1161 G4228 foot G1473 of yours G3766.2 in no way G4350 should stumble.
24 G1437 For if G1063 G2521 you should sit down, G869.2 you will be without fear; G1510.8.2 G1437 and if G1161 G2518 you should repose, G2234 [2with pleasure G5258.1 1you shall sleep].
25 G2532 And G3756 you shall not G5399 be afraid G4423 of terror G1904 coming upon, G3761 nor G3730 the thrusting G765 of the impious G1904 coming upon.
26 G3588 For the G1063 G2962 lord G1510.8.3 will be G1909 over G3956 all G3598 your ways, G1473 G2532 and G2043 he shall establish G4674 your G4228 foot G2443 that G3361 you should not G4531 be shaken.
27 G3361 You should not be G566 at a distance G2095 [2good G4160 1to do] G1729 to the one lacking, G2259 when G302 you should G2192 have G3588 G5495 your hand G1473 G997 to help.
28 G3361 You should not G2036 say, G1880 Returning back, G1880.1 come back again! G2532 and G839 tomorrow G1325 I will give; G1415 [2able G1473 5 is with you G1510.6 1 while being G2095 4good G4160 3to do]; G3756 for you shall not G1063 G1492 see G5100 what G5088 shall give birth G3588 G1896.2 against you .
29 G3361 You should not G5044.1 contrive G1909 [2against G4674 3your G5384 4friend G2556 1bad things], G3939 the one sojourning G2532 and G3982 relying G1909 upon G1473 you.
30 G3361 You should not G5367.1 be fond of quarreling G4314 against G444 a man G3155 in vain, G2443 so that G3361 [2not G1519 5against G1473 6you G2038 1he should 3work G2556 4evil].
31 G3361 You should not acquire G2932 G2556 evils G435 of men's G3681 scorn, G3366 nor G2206 should you be jealous G3588 G3598 of their ways. G1473
32 G169 [4 is unclean G1063 1For G1725 5before G2962 6 the lord G3956 2every G3892.1 3lawbreaker], G1722 [4with G1161 1and G1342 5 the righteous G3756 2they do not G4891.1 3sit together].
33 G2671 The curse G2962 of the lord G1722 is in G3624 the houses G765 of the impious, G1886 but the properties G1161 G1342 of the just G2127 are blessed.
34 G2962 The lord G5244 [2 the proud G498 1resists], G5011 [4 to the humble G1161 1but G1325 2gives G5484 3favor].
