Proverbs 3:1-12; 30:1-4

Admonition to Trust and Honour God

3My child, do not forget my teaching,
   but let your heart keep my commandments;
2 for length of days and years of life
   and abundant welfare they will give you.


3 Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
   bind them round your neck,
   write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 So you will find favour and good repute
   in the sight of God and of people.


5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
   and do not rely on your own insight.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
   and he will make straight your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
   fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
8 It will be a healing for your flesh
   and a refreshment for your body.


9 Honour the Lord with your substance
   and with the first fruits of all your produce;
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
   and your vats will be bursting with wine.


11 My child, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
   or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves the one he loves,
   as a father the son in whom he delights.

Sayings of Agur

30The words of Agur son of Jakeh. An oracle.


Thus says the man: I am weary, O God,
   I am weary, O God. How can I prevail?*
2 Surely I am too stupid to be human;
   I do not have human understanding.
3 I have not learned wisdom,
   nor have I knowledge of the holy ones.*
4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
   Who has gathered the wind in the hollow of the hand?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
   Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is the person’s name?
   And what is the name of the person’s child?
   Surely you know!
