Wisdom promiseth godliness to her children,
Proverbs 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and wilt hide my commandments with thee, Proverbs 2:2 That thy ear may hearken to wisdom: incline thy heart to know prudence. Proverbs 2:3 For if thou shalt call for wisdom, and incline thy heart to prudence: Proverbs 2:4 If thou shalt seek her as money, and shalt dig for her as for a treasure: Proverbs 2:5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and shalt find the knowledge of God: Proverbs 2:6 Because the Lord giveth wisdom: and out of his mouth cometh prudence and knowledge. Proverbs 2:7 He wilt keep the salvation of the righteous, and protect them that walk in simplicity, Proverbs 2:8 Keeping the paths of justice, and guarding the ways of saints. Proverbs 2:9 Then shalt thou understand justice, and judgment, and equity, and every good path.
and safety from evil company,
Proverbs 2:10 If wisdom shall enter into thy heart, and knowledge please thy soul: Proverbs 2:11 Counsel shall keep thee, and prudence shall preserve thee, Proverbs 2:12 That thou mayst be delivered from the evil way, and from the man that speaketh perverse things: Proverbs 2:13 Who leave the right way, and walk by dark ways: Proverbs 2:14 Who are glad when they have done evil, and rejoice in the most wicked things: Proverbs 2:15 Whose ways are perverse, and their steps infamous. Proverbs 2:16 That thou mayst be delivered from the strange woman, and from the stranger, who softeneth her words; Proverbs 2:17 And forsaketh the guide of her youth, Proverbs 2:18 And hath forgotten the covenant of her God: for her house inclineth unto death, and her paths to hell. Proverbs 2:19 None that go in unto her, shall return again, neither shall they take hold of the paths of life.
and direction in good ways.
Proverbs 2:20 That thou mayst walk in a good way: and mayst keep the paths of the just. Proverbs 2:21 For they that are upright, shall dwell in the earth; and the simple shall continue in it. Proverbs 2:22 But the wicked shall be destroyed from the earth: and they that do unjustly, shall be taken away from it.
