Book of Proverbs - Chapter 2

Proverbs 2:1

My son, if you will receive my words, and store up my commandments within you;

Proverbs 2:2

So as to turn your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding;

Proverbs 2:3

Yes, if you call out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding;

Proverbs 2:4

If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures:

Proverbs 2:5

then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 2:6

For the LORD gives wisdom. Out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:7

He lays up sound wisdom for the upright. He is a shield to those who walk in integrity;

Proverbs 2:8

that he may guard the paths of justice, and preserve the way of his saints.

Proverbs 2:9

Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path.

Proverbs 2:10

For wisdom will enter into your heart. Knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.

Proverbs 2:11

Discretion will watch over you. Understanding will keep you,

Proverbs 2:12

to deliver you from the way of evil, from the men who speak perverse things;

Proverbs 2:13

who forsake the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

Proverbs 2:14

who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the perverseness of evil;

Proverbs 2:15

who are crooked in their ways, and wayward in their paths:

Proverbs 2:16

To deliver you from the strange woman, even from the foreigner who flatters with her words;

Proverbs 2:17

who forsakes the friend of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God:

Proverbs 2:18

for her house leads down to death, her paths to the dead.

Proverbs 2:19

None who go to her return again, neither do they attain to the paths of life:

Proverbs 2:20

that you may walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

Proverbs 2:21

For the upright will dwell in the land. The perfect will remain in it.

Proverbs 2:22

But the wicked will be cut off from the land. The treacherous will be rooted out of it.
