Proverbs 2


The Pursuit of Wisdom Brings Security

Proverbs 2:1   My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you,
Proverbs 2:2   Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;
Proverbs 2:3   For if you cry for discernment, Lift 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 discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:6   For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:7   He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Proverbs 2:8   Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
Proverbs 2:9   Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.
Proverbs 2:10   For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
Proverbs 2:11   Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you,
Proverbs 2:12   To deliver you from the way of evil, From the man who speaks perverse things;
Proverbs 2:13   From those who leave the paths of uprightness To walk in the ways of darkness;
Proverbs 2:14   Who delight in doing evil And rejoice in the perversity of evil;
Proverbs 2:15   Whose paths are crooked, And who are devious in their ways;
Proverbs 2:16   To deliver you from the strange woman, From the adulteress who flatters with her words;
Proverbs 2:17   That leaves the companion of her youth And forgets the covenant of her God;
Proverbs 2:18   For her house sinks down to death And her tracks lead to the dead;
Proverbs 2:19   None who go to her return again, Nor do they reach the paths of life.
Proverbs 2:20   So you will walk in the way of good men And keep to the paths of the righteous.
Proverbs 2:21   For the upright will live in the land And the blameless will remain in it;
Proverbs 2:22   But the wicked will be cut off from the land And the treacherous will be uprooted from it.
