Proverbs 2

Proverbs 2:1  
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

Proverbs 2:2  
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

Proverbs 2:3  
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

Proverbs 2:4  
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

Proverbs 2:5  
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 2:6  
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:7  
He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

Proverbs 2:8  
He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

Proverbs 2:9  
Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

Proverbs 2:10  
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

Proverbs 2:11  
Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

Proverbs 2:12  
To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

Proverbs 2:13  
Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

Proverbs 2:14  
Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

Proverbs 2:15  
Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

Proverbs 2:16  
To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

Proverbs 2:17  
Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

Proverbs 2:18  
For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

Proverbs 2:19  
None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

Proverbs 2:20  
That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

Proverbs 2:21  
For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

Proverbs 2:22  
But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
