Proverbs Chapter 3   
   King James Version

     1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: [jfb] [jwc]   2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. [gsn] [jfb]   3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. [jfb] [jwc]   5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [jfb] [jwc]   6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. [jfb]   7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. [jfb]   8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: [jfb] [jwc]   12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son [in whom] he delighteth. [jfb]   13 Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man [that] getteth understanding. [jfb] [jwc]   14 For the merchandise of it [is] better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. [jfb]   15 She [is] more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. [jfb]   16 Length of days [is] in her right hand; [and] in her left hand riches and honour. [gsn] [jfb]   17 Her ways [are] ways of pleasantness, and all her paths [are] peace. [jfb] [jwc]   18 She [is] a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy [is every one] that retaineth her. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. [jwc]   21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: [jfb] [jwc]   22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. [jfb] [jwc]   23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.   24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.   25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. [jfb] [jwc]   27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do [it]. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee. [jwc]   29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.   31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   32 For the froward [is] abomination to the LORD: but his secret [is] with the righteous. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   33 The curse of the LORD [is] in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just. [jfb] [jwc]   34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly. [gsn] [jfb]   35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools. [jfb] [jwc]
