Proverbs 4:1–9

Parental Advice

4Listen, children, to a father’s instruction,
   and be attentive, that you may gain* insight;
2 for I give you good precepts:
   do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father,
   tender, and my mother’s favourite,
4 he taught me, and said to me,
‘Let your heart hold fast my words;
   keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight: do not forget, nor turn away
   from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
   love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
   and whatever else you get, get insight.
8 Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
   she will honour you if you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head a fair garland;
   she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.’
