Proverbs 4

4:1 Heare, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know vnderstanding. 4:2 For I giue you good doctrine: forsake you not my law. 4:3 For I was my fathers sonne, tender and onely beloued in the sight of my mother. 4:4 He taught me also, and said vnto me, Let thine heart reteine my wordes: keepe my commandements, and liue. 4:5 Get wisedome, get vnderstanding: forget it not, neither decline from the wordes of my mouth. 4:6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserue thee: loue her, and she shall keepe thee. 4:7 Wisedome is the principall thing, therefore get wisedome: and with all thy getting, get vnderstanding. 4:8 Exalt her, and shee shall promote thee: shee shall bring thee to honour, when thou doest imbrace her. 4:9 She shall giue to thine head an ornament of grace, a crowne of glory shall she deliuer to thee. 4:10 Heare, O my sonne, and receiue my sayings: and the yeeres of thy life shalbe many. 4:11 I haue taught thee in the way of wisedome: I haue lead thee in right pathes. 4:12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitned, and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction, let her not goe; keepe her, for she is thy life. 4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and goe not in the way of euill men. 4:15 Auoid it, passe not by it, turne from it, and passe away. 4:16 For they sleepe not except they haue done mischiefe: and their sleepe is taken away vnlesse they cause some to fall. 4:17 For they eate the bread of wickednesse, and drinke the wine of violence. 4:18 But the path of the iust is as the shining light that shineth more and more vnto the perfect day. 4:19 The way of the wicked is as darknes: they know not at what they stumble. 4:20 My sonne, attend to my words, incline thine eare vnto my sayings. 4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes: keepe them in the midst of thine heart. 4:22 For they are life vnto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 4:23 Keepe thy heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life. 4:24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and peruerse lips put farre from thee. 4:25 Let thine eyes looke right on, and let thine eye lids looke straight before thee. 4:26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy wayes be established. 4:27 Turne not to the right hande nor to the left: remoue thy foot fro euil.
