Proverbs 3

3:1 My sonne, forget not my lawe; but let thine heart keepe my commaundements: 3:2 For length of dayes, and long life, and peace shall they adde to thee. 3:3 Let not mercy and trueth forsake thee: bind them about thy necke, write them vpon the table of thine heart. 3:4 So shalt thou find fauour, and good vnderstanding in the sight of God, and man. 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and leaue not vnto thine owne vnderstanding. 3:6 In all thy wayes acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy pathes. 3:7 Be not wise in thine owne eyes: feare the Lord, and depart from euill. 3:8 It shalbe health to thy nauill, and marrow to thy bones. 3:9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase. 3:10 So shall thy barnes be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. 3:11 My sonne, despise not the chastening of the Lord: neither be weary of his correction. 3:12 For whom the Lord loueth, he correcteth, euen as a father the sonne, in whom he delighteth. 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisedome, and the man that getteth vnderstanding. 3:14 For the merchandise of it is better then the merchandise of siluer, and the gaine thereof, then fine gold. 3:15 She is more precious then Rubies: and all the things thou canst desire, are not to be compared vnto her. 3:16 Length of dayes is in her right hand: and in her left hand, riches and honour. 3:17 Her wayes are wayes of plesantnesse: and all her pathes are peace. 3:18 She is a tree of life, to them that lay hold vpon her: and happy is euery one that retaineth her. 3:19 The Lord by wisedome hath founded the earth; by vnderstanding hath he established the heauens. 3:20 By his knowledge the depthes are broken vp; and the cloudes droppe downe the dew. 3:21 My sonne, let not them depart from thine eyes: keepe sound wisedome and discretion. 3:22 So shall they bee life vnto thy soule, and grace to thy necke. 3:23 Then shalt thou walke in thy way safely, & thy foot shall not stumble. 3:24 When thou lyest downe, thou shalt not be afraide: yea, thou shalt lye downe, and thy sleepe shalbe sweet. 3:25 Be not afraid of sudden feare, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it commeth. 3:26 For the Lord shalbe thy confidence, and shall keepe thy foote from being taken. 3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to doe it. 3:28 Say not vnto thy neighbour, Goe, and come againe, and to morrow I will giue, when thou hast it by thee. 3:29 Deuise not euil against thy neighbour, seeing hee dwelleth securely by thee. 3:30 Striue not with a man without cause, if hee haue done thee no harme. 3:31 Enuie thou not the oppressour, and choose none of his wayes. 3:32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous. 3:33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the iust. 3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giueth grace vnto the lowly. 3:35 The wise shall inherite glory, but shame shalbe the promotion of fooles.
