In the sight of God and man.

My son, despise not the chastening of Jehovah;
Neither be weary of his reproof:

For whom Jehovah loveth he reproveth,
Even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:13 -
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,
And the man that getteth understanding.

For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver,
And the profit thereof than fine gold.

She is more precious than rubies:
And none of the things thou canst desire are to be compared unto her.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:16 -
Length of days is in her right hand;
In her left hand are riches and honor.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:17 -
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:18 -
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:
And happy is every one that retaineth her.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:19 -
Jehovah by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding he established the heavens.

By his knowledge the depths were broken up,
And the skies drop down the dew.

My son, let them not depart from thine eyes;
Keep sound wisdom and discretion:
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:22 -
So shall they be life unto thy soul,
And grace to thy neck.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:23 -
Then shalt thou walk in thy way securely,
And thy foot shall not stumble.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:24 -
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid:
Yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh:

And will keep thy foot from being taken.

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
When it is in the power of thy hand to do it.

And to-morrow I will give;
When thou hast it by thee.

Seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

Strive not with a man without cause,
If he have done thee no harm.

Envy thou not the man of violence,
And choose none of his ways.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:32 -
For the perverse is an abomination to Jehovah;
But his friendship is with the upright.

The curse of Jehovah is in the house of the wicked;
But he blesseth the habitation of the righteous.

Surely he scoffeth at the scoffers;
But he giveth grace unto the lowly.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:35 -
The wise shall inherit glory;
But shame shall be the promotion of fools.
