“Be willing to heare euery godly discourse, and let not the parables of vnderstanding escape thee.”
King James Version (KJV)
32. My sonne, if thou wilt, thou shalt bee taught: and if thou wilt apply thy minde, thou shalt be prudent. 33. If thou loue to heare, thou shalt receiue vnderstanding: and if thou bow thine eare, thou shalt be wise. 34. Stand in the multitude of the elders, and cleaue vnto him that is wise. 35. Be willing to heare euery godly discourse, and let not the parables of vnderstanding escape thee. 36. And if thou seest a man of vnderstanding, get thee betimes vnto him, and let thy foote weare the steps of his doore. 37. Let thy minde be vpon the ordinances of the Lord, & meditate continually in his commandements: he shal establish thine heart, and giue thee wisedome at thine owne desire.
