Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:1 - My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:2 - making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:3 - yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:4 - if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:5 - then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find 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 sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:8 - guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:9 - Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:10 - for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:11 - discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:12 - delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:13 - who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:14 - who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:15 - men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:16 - You will be saved from the loose woman, from the adventuress with her smooth words,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:17 - who forsakes 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 paths to the shades;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:19 - none who go to her come back nor do they regain the paths of life.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:20 - So you will walk in the way of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:21 - For the upright will inhabit the land, and men of integrity will remain in it;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 2:22 - but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.
