Proverb 2 KJV: My son, if thou wilt receive my

Proverb 2 – KJV (King James Version)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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