Trusting in the Lord

3My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart.H1121H7911H8451H3820H5341H46872If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.H753H3117H8141H2416H7965H3254 3Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.H2617H571H5800H7194H1621H3789H3871H3820 4Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.H4672H2580H2896H7922H5869H430H120 5Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.H982H3068H3820H8172H998 6Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.H1870H3045H3474H734 7Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.H2450H5869H3372H3068H5493H7451 8Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.H7500H8270H8250H6106 9Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce.H3513H3068H1952H7225H8393 10Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.H618H4390H7647H3342H6555H8492 11My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you.H1121H3988H4148H3068H6973H8433 12For the Lord corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.H3068H157H3198H1H1121H7521 13Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding.H835H120H4672H2451H120H6329H8394 14For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold.H5504H2896H5505H3701H8393H2742 15Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.H3368H6443H2656H7737 16She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left.H753H3117H3225H8040H6239H3519 17She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying.H1870H1870H5278H5410H7965 18Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.H6086H2416H2388H833H8551 19By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens.H3068H2451H3245H776H8394H3559H8064 20By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.H1847H8415H1234H7834H7491H2919 21My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them,H1121H3868H5869H5341H8454H4209 22for they will refresh your soul. They are like jewels on a necklace.H2416H5315H2580H1621 23They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble.H3212H1870H983H7272H5062 24You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly.H7901H6342H7901H8142H6149 25You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked,H3372H6597H6343H7722H7563H935 26for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.H3068H3689H8104H7272H3921 27Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.H4513H2896H1167H410H3027H6213 28If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”H559H7453H3212H7725H4279H5414H3426 29Don’t plot harm against your neighbor, for those who live nearby trust you.H2790H7451H7453H3427H983 30Don’t pick a fight without reason, when no one has done you harm.H7378H120H2600H1580H7451 31Don’t envy violent people or copy their ways.H7065H376H2555H977H1870 32Such wicked people are detestable to the Lord, but he offers his friendship to the godly.H3868H8441H3068H5475H3477 33The Lord curses the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the upright.H3994H3068H1004H7563H1288H5116H6662 34The Lord mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble.H3887H3887H5414H2580H6035H6041 35The wise inherit honor, but fools are put to shame!H2450H5157H3519H7036H7311H3684
