Proverbs 4

1  Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

2  For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

3  For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

4  He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

5  Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

6  Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

7  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

8  Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

9  She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

10  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
