1 H1121 My son H7911 [H8799] , forget H8451 not my law H3820 ; but let thy heart H5341 [H8799] keep H4687 my commandments:
2 H753 For length H3117 of days H8141 , and long H2416 life H7965 , and peace H3254 [H8686] , shall they add to thee.
3 H2617 Let not mercy H571 and truth H5800 [H8799] forsake H7194 [H8798] thee: bind H1621 them about thy neck H3789 [H8798] ; write H3871 them upon the table H3820 of thy heart:
4 H4672 [H8798] So shalt thou find H2580 favour H2896 and good H7922 understanding H5869 in the sight H430 of God H120 and man.
5 H982 [H8798] Trust H3068 in the LORD H3820 with all thy heart H8172 [H8735] ; and lean H998 not to thy own understanding.
6 H1870 In all thy ways H3045 [H8798] acknowledge H3474 [H8762] him, and he shall direct H734 thy paths.
7 H2450 Be not wise H5869 in thy own eyes H3372 [H8798] : fear H3068 the LORD H5493 [H8798] , and depart H7451 from evil.
9 H3513 [H8761] Honour H3068 the LORD H1952 with thy substance H7225 , and with the firstfruits H8393 of all thy increase:
10 H618 So shall thy barns H4390 [H8735] be filled H7647 with plenty H3342 , and thy presses H6555 [H8799] shall burst out H8492 with new wine.
11 H1121 My son H3988 [H8799] , despise H4148 not the chastening H3068 of the LORD H6973 [H8799] ; neither be weary H8433 of his correction:
12 H3068 For whom the LORD H157 [H8799] loveth H3198 [H8686] he correcteth H1 ; even as a father H1121 the son H7521 [H8799] in whom he delighteth.
13 H835 Happy H120 is the man H4672 [H8804] that findeth H2451 wisdom H120 , and the man H6329 [H8686] that getteth H8394 understanding.
14 H5504 For the merchandise H2896 of it is better H5505 than the merchandise H3701 of silver H8393 , and the gain H2742 of it than fine gold.
15 H3368 She is more precious H6443 than rubies H2656 : and all the things thou canst desire H7737 [H8799] are not to be compared to her.
16 H753 Length H3117 of days H3225 is in her right hand H8040 ; and in her left hand H6239 riches H3519 and honour.
18 H6086 She is a tree H2416 of life H2388 [H8688] to them that lay hold H833 [H8794] upon her: and happy H8551 [H8802] is every one that retaineth her.
19 H3068 The LORD H2451 by wisdom H3245 [H8804] hath founded H776 the earth H8394 ; by understanding H3559 [H8790] hath he established H8064 the heavens.
20 H1847 By his knowledge H8415 the depths H1234 [H8738] are broken up H7834 , and the clouds H7491 [H8799] drop down H2919 the dew.
21 H1121 My son H3868 [H8799] , let not them depart H5869 from thy eyes H5341 [H8798] : keep H8454 sound wisdom H4209 and discretion:
23 H3212 [H8799] Then shalt thou walk H1870 in thy way H983 safely H7272 , and thy foot H5062 [H8799] shall not stumble.
24 H7901 [H8799] When thou liest down H6342 [H8799] , thou shalt not be afraid H7901 [H8804] : but, thou shalt lie down H8142 , and thy sleep H6149 [H8804] shall be sweet.
25 H3372 [H8799] Be not afraid H6597 of sudden H6343 fear H7722 , neither of the desolation H7563 of the wicked H935 [H8799] , when it cometh.
26 H3068 For the LORD H3689 shall be thy confidence H8104 [H8804] , and shall keep H7272 thy foot H3921 from being taken.
27 H4513 [H8799] Withhold H2896 not good H1167 from them to whom it is due H410 , when it is in the power H3027 of thy hand H6213 [H8800] to do it.
28 H559 [H8799] Say H7453 not to thy neighbour H3212 [H8798] , Go H7725 [H8798] , and come again H4279 , and to morrow H5414 [H8799] I will give H3426 ; when thou hast it by thee.
29 H2790 [H8799] Devise H7451 not evil H7453 against thy neighbour H3427 [H8802] , seeing he dwelleth H983 securely by thee.
30 H7378 [H8799] Strive H120 not with a man H2600 without cause H1580 [H8804] , if he hath done H7451 thee no harm.
31 H7065 [H8762] Envy H376 H2555 thou not the oppressor H977 [H8799] , and choose H1870 none of his ways.
32 H3868 [H8737] For the perverse H8441 man is an abomination H3068 to the LORD H5475 : but his secret H3477 is with the righteous.
33 H3994 The curse H3068 of the LORD H1004 is in the house H7563 of the wicked H1288 [H8762] : but he blesseth H5116 the habitation H6662 of the just.
34 H3887 [H8686] Surely he scorneth H3887 [H8801] the scorners H5414 [H8799] : but he giveth H2580 grace H6035 H6041 [H8675] to the lowly.
