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. Honor the Lord from your wealth And from the first
of all your produce; So your barns will be filled with plentyAnd
your vats will overflow with new wine.
