Proverbs Scripture Reading - Proverbs 2:1-15

Proverbs 2:1-15 English Standard Version

The Value of Wisdom

1 My son, if you receive my words

    and treasure up my commandments with you,

2 making your ear attentive to wisdom

    and inclining your heart to understanding;

3 yes, if you call out for insight

    and raise your voice for understanding,

4 if you seek it like silver

    and search for it as for hidden treasures,

5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord

    and find the knowledge of God.

6 For the Lord gives wisdom;

    from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;

7 he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,

8 guarding the paths of justice

    and watching over the way of his saints.

9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice

    and equity, every good path;

10 for wisdom will come into your heart,

    and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;

11 discretion will watch over you,

    understanding will guard you,

12 delivering you from the way of evil,

    from men of perverted speech,

13 who forsake the paths of uprightness

    to walk in the ways of darkness,

14 who rejoice in doing evil

    and delight in the perverseness of evil,

15 men whose paths are crooked,

    and who are devious in their ways.
