Wisdom’s Worth
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:1 -

My son, if you accept my words

and store up my commands within you,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:2 -

listening closely[fn] to wisdom

and directing your heart to understanding;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:3 -

furthermore, if you call out to insight

and lift your voice to understanding,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:4 -

if you seek it like silver

and search for it like hidden treasure,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:5 -

then you will understand the fear of the LORD

and discover the knowledge of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:6 -

For the LORD gives wisdom;

from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:7 -

He stores up success[fn] for the upright;

He is a shield for those who live with integrity

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:8 -

so that he may guard the paths of justice

and protect the way of his faithful followers.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:9 -

Then you will understand righteousness, justice,

and integrity ​— ​every good path.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:10 -

For wisdom will enter your heart,

and knowledge will delight you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:11 -

Discretion will watch over you,

and understanding will guard you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:12 -

It will rescue you from the way of evil —

from anyone who says perverse things,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:13 -

from those who abandon the right paths

to walk in ways of darkness,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:14 -

from those who enjoy doing evil

and celebrate perversion,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:15 -

whose paths are crooked,

and whose ways are devious.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:16 -

It will rescue you from a forbidden woman,

from a wayward woman with her flattering talk,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:17 -

who abandons the companion of her youth

and forgets the covenant of her God;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:18 -

for her house sinks down to death

and her ways to the land of the departed spirits.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:19 -

None return who go to her;

none reach the paths of life.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:20 -

So follow the way of the good,

and keep to the paths of the righteous.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:21 -

For the upright will inhabit the land,

and those of integrity will remain in it;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:22 -

but the wicked will be cut off from the land,

and the treacherous ripped out of it.
