My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, 2 making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; 3 yes if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding
if you seek it like silver & search for it as hidden treasures, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord & find the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more previous than jewels. 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, & he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
When a man's folly brings his way to ruin, his heart rages against the Lord.
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Every word of God proves true; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him 6 do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you and you be found a liar
Remove far from me falsehood & lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me.
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction
