Proverbs 2 : 1-8

The Benefits of Wisdom
 1  My child, [1]  listen to what I say,
  and treasure my commands.
 2  Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding.  3  Cry out for insight,
  and ask for understanding.
 4  Search for them as you would for silver;
  seek them like hidden treasures.
 5  Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD,
  and you will gain knowledge of God.
 6  For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.  7  He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
  He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.
 8  He guards the paths of the just
  and protects those who are faithful to him.

<<  2:1 Hebrew My son.
