4:1 Hear [H8085] , ye children [H1121] , the instruction [H4148] of a father [H1] , and attend [H7181] to know [H3045] understanding [H998] .
4:2 For I give [H5414] you good [H2896] doctrine [H3948] , forsake [H5800] ye not my law [H8451] .
4:3 For I was my father's [H1] son [H1121] , tender [H7390] and only [H3173] [beloved] in the sight [H6440] of my mother [H517] .
4:4 He taught [H3384] me also, and said [H559] unto me, Let thine heart [H3820] retain [H8551] my words [H1697] : keep [H8104] my commandments [H4687] , and live [H2421] .
4:5 Get [H7069] wisdom [H2451] , get [H7069] understanding [H998] : forget [H7911] [it] not; neither decline [H5186] from the words [H561] of my mouth [H6310] .
4:6 Forsake [H5800] her not, and she shall preserve [H8104] thee: love [H157] her, and she shall keep [H5341] thee.
4:7 Wisdom [H2451] [is] the principal thing [H7225] ; [therefore] get [H7069] wisdom [H2451] : and with all thy getting [H7075] get understanding [H998] .
4:8 Exalt [H5549] her, and she shall promote [H7311] thee: she shall bring thee to honour [H3513] , when thou dost embrace [H2263] her.
4:9 She shall give [H5414] to thine head [H7218] an ornament [H3880] of grace [H2580] : a crown [H5850] of glory [H8597] shall she deliver [H4042] to thee.(a crown: or, she shall compass thee with a crown of glory)
4:10 Hear [H8085] , O my son [H1121] , and receive [H3947] my sayings [H561] ; and the years [H8141] of thy life [H2416] shall be many [H7235] .
4:11 I have taught [H3384] thee in the way [H1870] of wisdom [H2451] ; I have led [H1869] thee in right [H3476] paths [H4570] .
4:12 When thou goest [H3212] , thy steps [H6806] shall not be straitened [H3334] ; and when thou runnest [H7323] , thou shalt not stumble [H3782] .
4:13 Take fast hold [H2388] of instruction [H4148] ; let [her] not go [H7503] : keep [H5341] her; for she [is] thy life [H2416] .
4:14 Enter [H935] not into the path [H734] of the wicked [H7563] , and go [H833] not in the way [H1870] of evil [H7451] [men].
4:15 Avoid [H6544] it, pass [H5674] not by it, turn [H7847] from it, and pass away [H5674] .
4:16 For they sleep [H3462] not, except they have done mischief [H7489] ; and their sleep [H8142] is taken away [H1497] , unless they cause [some] to fall [H3782] [H3782] .
4:17 For they eat [H3898] the bread [H3899] of wickedness [H7562] , and drink [H8354] the wine [H3196] of violence [H2555] .
4:18 But the path [H734] of the just [H6662] [is] as the shining [H5051] light [H216] , that shineth [H215] more [H1980] and more unto the perfect [H3559] day [H3117] .
4:19 The way [H1870] of the wicked [H7563] [is] as darkness [H653] : they know [H3045] not at what they stumble [H3782] .
4:20 My son [H1121] , attend [H7181] to my words [H1697] ; incline [H5186] thine ear [H241] unto my sayings [H561] .
4:21 Let them not depart [H3868] from thine eyes [H5869] ; keep [H8104] them in the midst [H8432] of thine heart [H3824] .
4:22 For they [are] life [H2416] unto those that find [H4672] them, and health [H4832] to all their flesh [H1320] .(health: Heb. medicine)
4:23 Keep [H5341] thy heart [H3820] with all diligence [H4929] ; for out of it [are] the issues [H8444] of life [H2416] .(with: Heb. above all keeping)
4:24 Put away [H5493] from thee a froward [H6143] mouth [H6310] , and perverse [H3891] lips [H8193] put far [H7368] from thee.(a froward: Heb. frowardness of mouth and perverseness of lips)
4:25 Let thine eyes [H5869] look [H5027] right on [H5227] , and let thine eyelids [H6079] look straight [H3474] before thee.
4:26 Ponder [H6424] the path [H4570] of thy feet [H7272] , and let all thy ways [H1870] be established [H3559] .(let: or, all thy ways shall be ordered aright)
4:27 Turn [H5186] not to the right hand [H3225] nor to the left [H8040] : remove [H5493] thy foot [H7272] from evil [H7451] .
