1My son, if you accept my words And treasure up my commandments; 2If you make your ear attentive to wisdom And your mind open to discernment; 3If you call to understanding And cry aloud to discernment, 4If you seek it as you do silver And search for it as for treasures, 5Then you will understand the fear of the LORD And attain knowledge of God. 6For the LORD grants wisdom; Knowledge and discernment are by His decree. 7He reserves ability for the upright And is a shield for those who live blamelessly, 8Guarding the paths of justice, Protecting the way of those loyal to Him. 9You will then understand what is right, just, And equitable—every good course. 10For wisdom will enter your mind And knowledge will delight you. 11Foresight will protect you, And discernment will guard you. 12It will save you from the way of evil men, From men who speak duplicity, 13Who leave the paths of rectitude To follow the ways of darkness, 14Who rejoice in doing evil And exult in the duplicity of evil men, 15Men whose paths are crooked And who are devious in their course. 16It will save you from the forbidden a Lit. “strange.” woman, From the alien woman whose talk is smooth, 17Who forsakes the companion of her youth And disregards the covenant of her God. 18Her house sinks down to Death, And her course leads to the shades. 19All who go to her cannot return And find again the paths of life. 20So follow the way of the good And keep to the paths of the just. 21For the upright will inhabit the earth, The blameless will remain in it. 22While the wicked will vanish from the land And the treacherous will be rooted out of it.

Notes:

a Lit. “strange.”
