|My son, do not forget my
teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of
days and years of life And peace they will add to you. Do not
let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor
and good repute In the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord
with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away
from evil. It will be healing to your body And refreshment to
your bones. 9 Honor the Lord from your wealth And from the first
of all your produce; So your barns will be filled with plenty
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
