3:2 For length [H753] of days [H3117] , and long [H8141] life [H2416] , and peace [H7965] , shall they add [H3254] to thee.(long: Heb. years of life)
3:3 Let not mercy [H2617] and truth [H571] forsake [H5800] thee: bind [H7194] them about thy neck [H1621] ; write [H3789] them upon the table [H3871] of thine heart [H3820] :
3:4 So shalt thou find [H4672] favour [H2580] and good [H2896] understanding [H7922] in the sight [H5869] of God [H430] and man [H120] .(good: or, good success)

3:12 For whom the LORD [H3068] loveth [H157] he correcteth [H3198] ; even as a father [H1] the son [H1121] [in whom] he delighteth [H7521] .

3:25 Be not afraid [H3372] of sudden [H6597] fear [H6343] , neither of the desolation [H7722] of the wicked [H7563] , when it cometh [H935] .
3:26 For the LORD [H3068] shall be thy confidence [H3689] , and shall keep [H8104] thy foot [H7272] from being taken [H3921] .
3:27 Withhold [H4513] not good [H2896] from them to whom it is due [H1167] , when it is in the power [H410] of thine hand [H3027] to do [H6213] [it].(them: Heb. the owners thereof)
3:28 Say [H559] not unto thy neighbour [H7453] , Go [H3212] , and come again [H7725] , and to morrow [H4279] I will give [H5414] ; when thou hast [H3426] it by thee.
3:29 Devise [H2790] not evil [H7451] against thy neighbour [H7453] , seeing he dwelleth [H3427] securely [H983] by thee.(Devise: or, Practise no evil)

3:31 Envy [H7065] thou not the oppressor [H376] [H2555] , and choose [H977] none of his ways [H1870] .(the oppressor: Heb. a man of violence)
3:32 For the froward [H3868] [is] abomination [H8441] to the LORD [H3068] : but his secret [H5475] [is] with the righteous [H3477] .
3:33 The curse [H3994] of the LORD [H3068] [is] in the house [H1004] of the wicked [H7563] : but he blesseth [H1288] the habitation [H5116] of the just [H6662] .
3:34 Surely he scorneth [H3887] the scorners [H3887] : but he giveth [H5414] grace [H2580] unto the lowly [H6035] [H6041] .
3:35 The wise [H2450] shall inherit [H5157] glory [H3519] : but shame [H7036] shall be the promotion [H7311] of fools [H3684] .(shall be: Heb. exalteth the fools)
