The Benefits of Wisdom

2My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands.H1121H3947H561H6845H4687 2Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding.H7181H241H2451H5186H3820H8394 3Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding.H7121H998H5414H6963H8394 4Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures.H1245H3701H2664H4301 5Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.H995H3374H3068H4672H1847H430 6For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.H3068H5414H2451H6310H1847H8394 7He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.H6845H6845H8454H3477H4043H1980H8537 8He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him.H5341H734H4941H8104H1870H2623 9Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go.H995H6664H4941H4339H2896H4570 10For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy.H2451H935H3820H1847H5276H5315 11Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.H4209H8104H8394H5341 12Wisdom will save you from evil people, from those whose words are twisted.H5337H1870H7451H376H1696H8419 13These men turn from the right way to walk down dark paths.H5800H734H3476H3212H1870H2822 14They take pleasure in doing wrong, and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil.H8056H6213H7451H1523H8419H7451 15Their actions are crooked, and their ways are wrong.H734H6141H3868H4570 16Wisdom will save you from the immoral woman, from the seductive words of the promiscuous woman.H5337H2114H802H5237H2505H561 17She has abandoned her husband and ignores the covenant she made before God.H5800H441H5271H7911H1285H430 18Entering her house leads to death; it is the road to the grave.H1004H7743H4194H4570H7496 19The man who visits her is doomed. He will never reach the paths of life.H935H7725H5381H734H2416 20Follow the steps of good men instead, and stay on the paths of the righteous.H3212H1870H2896H8104H734H6662 21For only the godly will live in the land, and those with integrity will remain in it.H3477H7931H776H8549H3498 22But the wicked will be removed from the land, and the treacherous will be uprooted.H7563H3772H776H898H5255
