Proverbs 2:1-22 - The Benefits Of Wisdom
and store up my commands within you,
and directing your heart to understanding;
and lift your voice to understanding,
and search for it like hidden treasure,
and discover the knowledge of God.
from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He is a shield for those who live with integrity
and protect the way of His loyal followers.
and integrity—every good path.
and knowledge will delight your heart.
and understanding will guard you,
from the one who says perverse things,
to walk in ways of darkness,
and celebrate perversion,
and whose ways are devious.
from a stranger
and forgets the covenant of her God;
and her ways to the land of the departed spirits.
none reach the paths of life.
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
and those of integrity will remain in it;
and the treacherous uprooted from it.
