Wisdom promiseth godliness to her children,
Proverbs 2:1 My sonne, if thou wylt receaue my wordes, and lay vp my commaundementes within thee, Proverbs 2:2 That thou wylt encline thine eares vnto wisdome: applye thine heart then to vnderstandyng. Proverbs 2:3 For if thou cryest after wisdome, and cryest for knowledge: Proverbs 2:4 If thou seekest for her as for siluer, and searchest for her as for treasures: Proverbs 2:5 Then shalt thou vnderstand the feare of the Lorde, and finde the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:6 For the Lorde geueth wisdome, out of his mouth commeth knowledge and vnderstandyng. Proverbs 2:7 He stirreth vp health for the righteous: and defendeth them that walke vprightly, Proverbs 2:8 That they may kepe the right path: and he preserueth the way of such as do serue him with godlinesse. Proverbs 2:9 Then shalt thou vnderstande righteousnesse, and iudgement, and equitie, yea and euery good path.
and safety from evil company,
Proverbs 2:10 When wisdome entreth into thine heart, and thy soule deliteth in knowledge: Proverbs 2:11 Then shall counsayle preserue thee, and vnderstandyng shall kepe thee, Proverbs 2:12 That thou mayest be deliuered from the euyll way, and from the man that speaketh frowarde thynges: Proverbs 2:13 From such as leaue the wayes of righteousnesse, to walke in the wayes of darknesse: Proverbs 2:14 Which reioyce in doyng naught, and delite in the wickednesse of the euyll: Proverbs 2:15 Whose wayes are croked, and they frowarde in their pathes. Proverbs 2:16 That thou mayest be deliuered also from the straunge woman, and from her that is not thine owne, which geueth sweete wordes, Proverbs 2:17 Forsaketh the husbande of her youth, & forgetteth the couenaunt of her God. Proverbs 2:18 For her house is enclined vnto death, and her pathes vnto hell. Proverbs 2:19 All they that go in vnto her, come not agayne, neither take they holde of the way of lyfe.
and direction in good ways.
Proverbs 2:20 Therfore walke thou in the way of such as be vertuous, & kepe the pathes of the righteous. Proverbs 2:21 For the iust shal dwell in the lande, and they that be perfect shall remayne in it. Proverbs 2:22 But the vngodly shall be cut of from the earth: and the wicked doers shalbe rooted out of it.
