Proverbs 3:5-18


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.

The True Wealth


13 Happy are those who find wisdom,
   and those who get understanding,
14 for her income is better than silver,
   and her revenue better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
   and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
   in her left hand are riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
   and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
   those who hold her fast are called happy.
