To keep the paths of judgment, And the way of His saints He preserveth. Then understandest thou righteousness, And judgment, and uprightness -- every good path. For wisdom cometh into thy heart, And knowledge to thy soul is pleasant, Thoughtfulness doth watch over thee, Understanding doth keep thee, To deliver thee from an evil way, From any speaking froward things, Who are forsaking paths of uprightness, To walk in ways of darkness, Who are rejoicing to do evil, They delight in frowardness of the wicked, Whose paths are crooked, Yea, they are perverted in their ways. To deliver thee from the strange woman, From the stranger who hath made smooth her sayings, Who is forsaking the guide of her youth, And the covenant of her God hath forgotten. For her house hath inclined unto death, And unto Rephaim her paths. None going in unto her turn back, Nor do they reach the paths of life. That thou dost go in the way of the good, And the paths of the righteous dost keep. For the upright do inhabit the earth, And the perfect are left in it, And the wicked from the earth are cut off, And treacherous dealers plucked out of it!

Proverbs 1:20-33

Wisdom in an out-place crieth aloud, In broad places she giveth forth her voice, At the head of the multitudes she calleth, In the openings of the gates, In the city her sayings she saith: 'Till when, ye simple, do ye love simplicity? And have scorners their scorning desired? And do fools hate knowledge? read more.
Turn back at my reproof, lo, I pour forth to you my spirit, I make known my words with you. Because I have called, and ye refuse, I stretched out my hand, and none is attending, And ye slight all my counsel, And my reproof ye have not desired. I also in your calamity do laugh, I deride when your fear cometh, When your fear cometh as destruction, And your calamity as a hurricane doth come, When on you come adversity and distress. Then they call me, and I do not answer, They seek me earnestly, and find me not. Because that they have hated knowledge, And the fear of Jehovah have not chosen. They have not consented to my counsel, They have despised all my reproof, And they eat of the fruit of their way, And from their own counsels they are filled. For the turning of the simple slayeth them, And the security of the foolish destroyeth them. And whoso is hearkening to me dwelleth confidently, And is quiet from fear of evil!'

Proverbs 8:32-34

And now, ye sons, hearken to me, Yea, happy are they who keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and slight not. O the happiness of the man hearkening to me, To watch at my doors day by day, To watch at the door-posts of my entrance.

'And because of the repeating of the dream unto Pharaoh twice, surely the thing is established by God, and God is hastening to do it. 'And now, let Pharaoh provide a man, intelligent and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt; let Pharaoh make and appoint overseers over the land, and receive a fifth of the land of Egypt in the seven years of plenty, and they gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh -- food in the cities; and they have kept it, and the food hath been for a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which are in the land of Egypt; and the land is cut off by the famine.'

Understand, ye simple ones, prudence, And ye fools, understand the heart, Hearken, for noble things I speak, And the opening of my lips is uprightness. For truth doth my mouth utter, And an abomination to my lips is wickedness. In righteousness are all the sayings of my mouth, Nothing in them is froward and perverse. All of them are plain to the intelligent, And upright to those finding knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver, And knowledge rather than choice gold.

In there being no depths, I was brought forth, In there being no fountains heavy with waters, Before mountains were sunk, Before heights, I was brought forth. While He had not made the earth, and out-places, And the top of the dusts of the world. In His preparing the heavens I am there, In His decreeing a circle on the face of the deep, In His strengthening clouds above, In His making strong fountains of the deep, In His setting for the sea its limit, And the waters transgress not His command, In His decreeing the foundations of earth, Then I am near Him, a workman, And I am a delight -- day by day. Rejoicing before Him at all times, Rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth, And my delights are with the sons of men.
