Proverbs 2: GENEVA BIBLE

Proverbs 2

1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments within thee,

2 And cause thine ears to hearken unto wisdom, and incline thine heart to understanding,

3 (For if thou callest after knowledge, and cryest for understanding:

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for treasures,

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

6 For the Lord giveth wisdom, out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

7 He preserveth the state of the righteous: he is a shield to them that walk uprightly,

8 That they may keep the ways of judgment: and he preserveth the way of his Saints)

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity, and every good path. 

10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge delighteth thy soul,

11 Then shall counsel preserve thee, and understanding shall keep thee,

12 And deliver thee from the evil way, and from the man that speaketh froward things,

13 And from them that leave the ways of righteousness to walk in the ways of darkness:

14 Which rejoice in doing evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked,

15 Whose ways are crooked and they are lewd in their paths.

16 And it shall deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger, which flattereth with her words.

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

18 Surely her house tendeth to death, and her paths unto the dead.

19 All they that go unto her, return not again, neither take they hold of the ways of life.

20 Therefore walk thou in the way of good men, and keep the ways of the righteous.

21 For the just shall dwell in the land, and the upright men shall remain in it.

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