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