Book of Proverbs - Chapter 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.
