Proverbs 2

2:1 My sonne, if thou wilt receiue my words, and hide my commaundements with thee; 2:2 So that thou incline thine eare vnto wisedome, and apply thine heart to vnderstanding: 2:3 Yea if thou cryest after knowledge, and liftest vp thy voyce for vnderstanding: 2:4 If thou seekest her as siluer, and searchest for her, as for hid treasures: 2:5 Then shalt thou vnderstand the feare of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. 2:6 For the Lord giueth wisedome: out of his mouth commeth knowledge, and vnderstanding. 2:7 He layeth vp sound wisedome for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walke vprightly. 2:8 He keepeth the pathes of iudgement, and preserueth the way of his Saints. 2:9 Then shalt thou vnderstand righteousnesse, and iudgement, and equity; yea euery good path. 2:10 When wisedome entreth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant vnto thy soule; 2:11 Discretion shall preserue thee, vnderstanding shall keepe thee: 2:12 To deliuer thee from the way of the euill man, from the man that speaketh froward things. 2:13 Who leaue the pathes of vprightnesse, to walke in the wayes of darkenesse: 2:14 Who reioyce to doe euill, and delight in the frowardnesse of the wicked. 2:15 Whose wayes are crooked, and they froward in their pathes. 2:16 To deliuer thee from the strange woman, euen from the stranger, which flattereth with her words: 2:17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the couenant of her God. 2:18 For her house inclineth vnto death, and her pathes vnto the dead: 2:19 None that goe vnto her, returne againe, neither take they hold of the pathes of life. 2:20 That thou mayest walke in the way of good men, and keepe the pathes of the righteous. 2:21 For the vpright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remaine in it. 2:22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressours shalbe rooted out of it.
