Listen to the Bible
Trust the LORD

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:1 -

My son, don’t forget my teaching,

but let your heart keep my commands;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:2 -

for they will bring you

many days, a full life,[fn] and well-being.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:3 -

Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you.

Tie them around your neck;

write them on the tablet of your heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:4 -

Then you will find favor and high regard

with God and people.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:5 -

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

and do not rely on your own understanding;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:6 -

in all your ways know him,

and he will make your paths straight.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:7 -

Don’t be wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:8 -

This will be healing for your body[fn]

and strengthening for your bones.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:9 -

Honor the Lord with your possessions

and with the first produce of your entire harvest;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:10 -

then your barns will be completely filled,

and your vats will overflow with new wine.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:11 -

Do not despise the Lord’s instruction, my son,

and do not loathe his discipline;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:12 -

for the Lord disciplines the one he loves,

just as a father disciplines the son in whom he delights.

Wisdom Brings Happiness

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:13 -

Happy is a man who finds wisdom

and who acquires understanding,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:14 -

for she is more profitable than silver,

and her revenue is better than gold.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:15 -

She is more precious than jewels;

nothing you desire can equal her.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:16 -

Long life[fn] is in her right hand;

in her left, riches and honor.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:17 -

Her ways are pleasant,

and all her paths, peaceful.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:18 -

She is a tree of life to those who embrace her,

and those who hold on to her are happy.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:19 -

The Lord founded the earth by wisdom

and established the heavens by understanding.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:20 -

By his knowledge the watery depths broke open,

and the clouds dripped with dew.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:21 -

Maintain sound wisdom and discretion.

My son, don’t lose sight of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:22 -

They will be life for you[fn]

and adornment[fn] for your neck.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:23 -

Then you will go safely on your way;

your foot will not stumble.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:24 -

When you lie[fn] down, you will not be afraid;

you will lie down, and your sleep will be pleasant.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:25 -

Don’t fear sudden danger

or the ruin of the wicked when it comes,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:26 -

for the Lord will be your confidence[fn]

and will keep your foot from a snare.

Treat Others Fairly

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:27 -

When it is in your power,[fn]

don’t withhold good from the one to whom it belongs.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:28 -

Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go away! Come back later.

I’ll give it tomorrow” ​— ​when it is there with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:29 -

Don’t plan any harm against your neighbor,

for he trusts you and lives near you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:30 -

Don’t accuse anyone without cause,

when he has done you no harm.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:31 -

Don’t envy a violent man

or choose any of his ways;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:32 -

for the devious are detestable to the Lord,

but he is a friend[fn] to the upright.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:33 -

The Lord’s curse is on the household of the wicked,

but he blesses the home of the righteous;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:34 -

He mocks those who mock,

but gives grace to the humble.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 3:35 -

The wise will inherit honor,

but he holds up fools to dishonor.[fn]
