Proverbs 3

3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thy heart keep my
3:2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add
 to thee.
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy
 neck; write them upon the table of thy heart:
3:4 So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight
 of God and man.
3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thy heart; and lean not to thy
 own understanding.
3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy
3:7 Be not wise in thy own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from
3:8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
3:9 Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the first-fruits
 of all thy increase:
3:10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses
 shall burst out with new wine.
3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be
 weary of his correction:
3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father
 the son [in whom] he delighteth.
3:13 Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man
 [that] getteth understanding.
3:14 For the merchandise of it [is] better than the merchandise
 of silver, and the gain of it than fine gold.
3:15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou
 canst desire are not to be compared to her.
3:16 Length of days [is] in her right hand; [and] in her left
 hand riches and honor.
3:17 Her ways [are] ways of pleasantness, and all her paths
 [are] peace.
3:18 She [is] a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and
 happy [is every one] that retaineth her.
3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding
 hath he established the heavens.
3:20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds
 drop down the dew.
3:21 My son, let not them depart from thy eyes: keep sound
 wisdom and discretion:
3:22 So shall they be life to thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
3:23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall
 not stumble.
3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: but thou
 shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
3:25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of
 the wicked, when it cometh.
3:26 For the LORD will be thy confidence, and will keep thy foot
 from being taken.
3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is
 in the power of thy hand to do [it].
3:28 Say not to thy neighbor, Go, and come again, and to-morrow
 I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
3:29 Devise not evil against thy neighbor, seeing he dwelleth
 securely by thee.
3:30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he hath done thee
 no harm.
3:31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
3:32 For the froward [is] abomination to the LORD: but his
 secret [is] with the righteous.
3:33 The curse of the LORD [is] in the house of the wicked: but
 he blesseth the habitation of the just.
3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace to the
3:35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the
 promotion of fools.
