Proverbs 2


Proverbs 2:1 My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you,
Proverbs 2:2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;
Proverbs 2:3 For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding;
Proverbs 2:4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Proverbs 2:5 Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Proverbs 2:8 Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
Proverbs 2:9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.
Proverbs 2:10 For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
Proverbs 2:11 Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you,
Proverbs 2:12 To deliver you from the way of evil, From the man who speaks perverse things;
Proverbs 2:13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness To walk in the ways of darkness;
Proverbs 2:14 Who delight in doing evil And rejoice in the perversity of evil;
Proverbs 2:15 Whose paths are crooked, And who are devious in their ways;
Proverbs 2:16 To deliver you from the strange woman, From the adulteress who flatters with her words;
Proverbs 2:17 That leaves the companion of her youth And forgets the covenant of her God;
Proverbs 2:18 For her house sinks down to death And her tracks lead to the dead;
Proverbs 2:19 None who go to her return again, Nor do they reach the paths of life.
Proverbs 2:20 So you will walk in the way of good men And keep to the paths of the righteous.
Proverbs 2:21 For the upright will live in the land And the blameless will remain in it;
Proverbs 2:22 But the wicked will be cut off from the land And the treacherous will be uprooted from it.
